Mistaken accelerator causes accident

It was a confusing morning for the female driver of a silver Nissan when she crashed into the back door of Wine Kitz in Orchard Plaza.

The owner of the business says the incident happened around 11:15 a.m. when a woman attempted to pull into a parking space in front of the store.

He believes the driver hit the gas instead of the brake – this fact was later backed up by officers at the scene, who say there was nothing mechanically wrong with the vehicle.

The driver did not sustain any injuries and will not be issued any tickets for driving infractions.

Wine Kitz is insured and the glass door will soon be replaced.

It was a close call for the owner and a friend, who were sitting outside the same door having coffee only minutes before the accident took place.
