A motorist who mistook the gas pedal for the break accidentally drove through the front window of a gas station in Kaplan last week, police said.

No one in the store was hurt, and the man driving wasn’t hurt, a Kaplan Police spokesman said.

The driver was an older person who hit the wrong pedal, the spokesman said.

The glass front of the store was damaged, and a counter was damaged, the spokesman said.

Since there were no injuries, no tickets were issued, he said.
