the person that was injured is stable and doing well. it could have been anyone that it happened to. the salon is under construction right now but still open for business. you just have to go thru the side door. it was scary for all of us. fortunately the emt's showed up quickly and steve was taken care of.

According to WWMT's website, the woman's car hit her husband and plowed him into the front of the building. He's the one who was injured (and it sounds like quite seriously). I was looking for more info, but this story clearly has LESS.

How does one mistake the gas pedal for the brake pedal, and why wouldn't you hit the brakes once you realized you were accelerating?????

wwmt blew it way out of porprtion. he was inside the building. it was a new car and your instinct is when you hit the brake and it doesnt stop you hit it harder and that is what happened. there wasnt a whole lot of room for her to stop. i am very upset at how wwmt stated the article. wood tv did a much better job, and he was sent home last night with a couplle of broken bones.

Wow Katie- that must have been terrifying! Outside of the man being hurt, I'm glad everyone else is okay and that you'll be back to business in no time.

How dumb do you got to be? I mean, come on! I've never, in my life, mistaked the gas pedal for the brake.

Now, here come the tree-hugging, jesus lovers who will say "everyone makes mistakes. It was just an accident."

Yeah, me either. If you can't figure that out, you shouldn't be driving.

The irony of this post is just too much to express with mere words.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I let my poor grammar run wild & free. I'm a numbers person, not a word person.

However, I am smart enough to drive a car. I think.

There's a drive through for just about anything else. Why not tanning?
