PLEASANTVILLE, N.J. - A New Jersey newspaper has scored an easy scoop.

A Corvette crashed into the newsroom of the Press of Atlantic City newspaper in Pleasantville.

The newspaper reports the car's driver fell asleep Tuesday before driving through an intersection, jumping a curb, travelling about 75 feet (23 metres) and then slamming into the newspaper's office.

No one in the office was hurt. The crash shattered two first-floor windows and knocked over several filing cabinets.

The female driver and a male passenger are being questioned by police.
