This is the wrong way to get to the head of the class.

A 64-year-old woman in Lucerne, Switzerland crashed her car into a schoolroom while trying to park.

Marianne Meier told police that she was trying to park when her foot slipped and slammed onto the throttle, causing her to fire through a classroom window, Digital Spy reported.

After demolishing the classroom entrance, Meier and her car ended up balanced on a staircase at Unterlochli School, Orange.co.uk reported.

"Luckily the school was closed at the time," a police spokesman said, according to WTFNews.com. "That area would normally have been crowded with children going to and from class."

Meier suffered minor injuries in the crash and was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for shock, Geobeats reported. No word yet if she will face charges.
