    Oops: Woman Presses Gas Instead of Brake, Car Goes Into 7-11 @ Palo Verde/Atherton

    (Oct. 28, 2003) -- LBFD says a woman accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake when pulling into the 7-11 at Palo Verde/Atherton on Oct. 27.

    LBFD Public Information Officer Capt. Scott Clegg says she struck the curb, pushing her foot harder onto the gas pedal...and propeling her through the glass doors and into the store.

    Inside, a 67-year old man filling his coffee cup was hit by the swinging glass door and the vehicle...and sustained a bruise to his left leg.

    Capt. Clegg says the woman was not injured.

    LBFD Fire Station 22 is virtually next door and firefighters were on scene immediately.

    They removed the car, swept up the glass and summoned a city inspector to ensure the building was OK. PIO Clegg says Capt. Greg Henry on scene did his best to get the occupant back open for business.
