A driver made a big mistake in Colton on Oct. 11, crashing a car into a pole, according to the Colton Police Department.

“One of the first things you learn when becoming legally licensed to drive is knowing which pedal is the gas and which pedal is the brake,” the Colton P.D. said in a Facebook post.

“Today our traffic unit responded to a single vehicle traffic collision caused by a unlicensed driver who confused the gas pedal with the brake pedal.”
