SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Police said a 17-year-old girl who was practicing how to drive broke her mother's legs after stepping on the gas pedal instead of the brake. Sgt. Thomas Long told the Republican newspaper that the mother was sitting on a fence when she was struck Saturday morning at a movie theater parking lot.
