(UNDATED) - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has sent 58,600 postcards with inaccurate first names, reminding motorists to renew their driver's licenses.

The mistake occurred as the BMV attempted to ease a deadline crunch.

About 2.4 million Hoosier drivers will need new licenses in 2012.

Graig Lubsen, the agency's Deputy Communications Director, says an employee accidentally altered some columns in an excel spreadsheet, causing the wrong first name to be placed with the correct last name and address.

Lubsen says the information on the postcard is still correct.

Customers who receive the faulty postcards should ignore the first name and still seek renewals.

No personal information was released as a result of the error.
