Elderly Woman Drives Through Laundromat Wall

NORTH PADRE ISLAND - A 75-year-old woman plowed her car through a laundromat early this morning. Police say the woman mistook her gas pedal for the brake and flew through the KWIK Wash Laundries on the 9700 block of S.P.I.D. on North Padre Island. She was OK but the car went about ten feet through the laundromat and crushed a bench on the other side. The accident happened early in the morning and no one was standing or sitting behind the brick wall. Police say they have not cited the woman and she didn't have any injuries.
