No one went to the hospital after a woman drove into the front of a Lafayette Road convenience store Sunday afternoon.
The Hopkinsville Police Report from Officer Daniel Gray says 69-year old Stella Todd of Clarksville was attempting to park at The Pantry on Lafayette Road at the intersection with Koffman Drive just before 3pm.
Ms. Todd told police her foot slipped off the brake pedal and onto the gas, causing her to jump the curb and hit the building. Her vehicle didn’t plunge all the way into the structure as has been the case in other recent incidents, but it did break the front window glass and it damaged bricks around the glass.
Ms. Todd complained of neck pain, but did not want to go to the hospital. No one inside the store was harmed.
