Vehicle Backs into Local Storefront

By  | 

Around noon on Saturday, a car backed into a shop on the 900 block of Harvey and Dartmouth in College Station.

The owner of a white Subaru was backing out of his parking space when the vehicle jumped the sidewalk and slammed into the production office of Old Army Spirit Company.

Authorities say that the cause of the accident might be due to the driver mistaking the gas pedal for the brake; causing the car to over accelerate.

The store was closed at the time of the accident there were no reported injuries.
