A 66-year-old woman crashed her sedan into Danville Karate International after mistaking the gas pedal for the brake early Friday evening, according to a Danville town spokesman.
The Hyundai went over the curb and across the walkway before hitting the building, causing some property damage at the Town and Country Shopping Center building, including breaking a window at the dojo, according to Geoff Gillette, town public information coordinator.
No injuries were reported as a result of the crash, according to Gillette.
The driver was identified as a Texas resident; her name was not released. Gillette said no citations have been filed by police, pending the completion of their investigation.
It was the San Ramon Valley's second prominent car-into-building crash tied to gas-brake confusion in a little more than a week.
A 71-year-old San Ramon resident crashed her Lexus into an empty, under-renovation storefront at The Marketplace in San Ramon after mistaking the gas pedal for the brake on Oct. 8, according to city police. No injuries were reported in that incident.
