Vehicle makes rest stop in a business

No serious injuries after a female driver slammed her Kia Sorrento into Dittos on Enterprise Friday morning.

The incident occurred sometime after 10 a.m.

An employee with the business says the driver apparently mistook the gas pedal for the brake, drove over a yellow parking curb and into the building.

The force of the collision took out part of a wall and window in front of the company's bathroom.

"Luckily the bathroom called me five minutes before, because that's exactly where the vehicle is," the employee stated.

"It did hit the pipes. We're just trying to contain the water right now."

Water apparently went into an adjacent business as well.

The business remains open.
