Car crashes through Westwood Village storefront

No injuries, store will be secured soon.

A older man in a late model Toyota sedan mistook the gas for the brake as he pulled up to the Westwood Village PetPro's on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 22. The car launched up over the edge of the sidewalk and through the window of the store smashing out the glass. The driver was not injured and the car actually did not suffer a lot of damage.

Mall Manager Gary Martindale said the store was going to actually reopen about 2 hours after the incident and that crews were on the way to get the store secured for the night. He also said the store would have the damage repaired as soon as possible in the next few days.

West Seattle Herald reader Lynnette Lotterer shared via Facebook, "My daughter was working at this store while it happened. I am very Thankful no one was hurt. It is the same thing that happened @ California Nails in the Junction a few years ago. Older man that got the pedals confused."
