A learner driver in China has accidentally crashed her husband's car into an office when staff were working, leaving two employees injured.

Surveillance footage shows the vehicle breaking through the wall of the building before slamming into two rows of cubicles, destroying the interiors. 

The driver, who was unhurt, then climbed out of the car under the debris.

The woman admitted to the police she did not have a driving license while being questioned

Police said the woman's husband, not a qualified instructor, was teaching her to drive in an office complex when the accident took place in Dongguan on Sunday.

They suspected she had mistaken the accelerator for the brake, leading the accident to happen.

CCTV footage shows the woman opening the car door and getting into the driver's seat before her husband got into the passenger's seat.

The black car then started off, made a U-turn and smashed straight into the building.

While being questioned by the police at the scene, the woman however told a different story. 

According to Dongguan Radio and Television Station, she claimed that she was trying to turn off the ignition of the car after her husband had forgot to so do, and she pressed the accelerator by mistake.

The woman admitted she did not have a driving license.
