One hurt after driver crashes into Santa Clara fabric store

SANTA CLARA, UT – A woman’s slip-on shoes fell off her feet and got stuck in a gas pedal, ultimately leading her to drive through a store. 

The woman accidentally put the car in drive instead of in reverse, which caused her to lose control of her vehicle and crash into the Clover Patch Quilt Shop on Monday, KSL TV reported. 

The building sustained a significant hole on its side. It is unclear if the driver, an elderly woman, was harmed in the collision.

However, officials did confirm that the store owner suffered unspecified injuries as the printer collided with her. She was treated at the scene and refused transportation to a hospital.
