Maybe she thought it was a drive-through? Woman crashes car into China Maxim; no injuries

A car crashed into a restaurant on Lakeview Avenue last week after the driver mistook the gas pedal for the brake.

According to Deputy Police Chief David Chartrand, around on Thursday, June 19, about 1 p.m., a 53-year-old woman pulled into the parking lot in front of China Maxim, 1734 Lakeview Ave. She accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake, he said.

“She made a mistake,” Chartrand said.

No charges were filed against the woman, and there were no reported injuries. As for the damage sustained, Chartrand said that would be an insurance issue.

No further information was available.
