The woman was trying to park her Chrysler PT Cruiser in the Vons grocery store lot on Grand Avenue when she accidentally stepped on the gas pedal. The car went over a curb and sidewalk before knocking down a railing and slamming into shopping carts.
The cruiser narrowly missed hitting the Vons building.
No one suffered any injuries, but paramedics examined the driver at the scene of the crash. Police did not cite the woman, but the DMV will request that she undergo a driver reexamination.
