MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) — A man who mistakenly thought the Lexus he just bought was in reverse crashed into an auto dealership, sending one person to the hospital.

A Clackamas Fire District spokesman says the crash happened Saturday afternoon at a used-car lot in the Portland suburb of Milwaukie.

The car went through a wall and over a desk before hitting a male bystander in an office. The victim was briefly pinned under the car. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.

A woman and a 12-year-old boy were able to jump out of the way.

The driver was not hurt.
