Cost of damage unknown after car crashes into Subway restaurant

By From page A3 | February 11, 2013

CORDELIA — A building engineer was called Sunday to assess the stability of a Subway restaurant after an elderly woman drove her vehicle into the building Saturday evening, according to fire officials.

The woman apparently confused her brake pedal with her gas pedal, stepped onto the gas and accelerated into the building. Her car went through the glass windows and stopped in the middle of the dining room.

No one was injured in the accident. The structure was heavily damaged, but the total cost of the damage is still unknown.
