In an occurring theme, yet another elderly person has mistaken the brake petal for the gas, and plowed through a building. In addition, in Westbrook, Maine on Sunday an older driver who was in the process of parking mistook the brake for the gas petal, and drove through the front of a Rite Aid store. The driver went through the front glass panel, and came to a rest inside the store.
The driver and their passenger were uninjured in the crash. A woman who was inside the store was hurt with non-life-threatening injures, and taken to Maine Medical Center to be evaluated. Everyone inside the store was shocked and shaken up following the accident because of the position the car was in while inside the building. Likewise, the vehicle ended up stopping up against the cashier's station, and people were lined up at the register when the car came through the front window. It's a miracle no one was seriously injured or killed.
