On Monday afternoon, a driver in a white car was speeding near the corner of Marsh and Carmel streets and tried to stop in order to avoid hitting a stopped car. But, the driver stepped on the gas instead of the brakes, causing the car to go through the fence at the Belsher, Becker & Roberts law office.
In addition to smashing the fence, the vehicle uprooted a no left turn sign, a photo shows.
No one suffered injuries in the crash, and only the one car was involved.
San Luis Obispo police responded to the crash and determined that the driver was speeding prior to the accident. Officers did not indicate, though, whether they would cite the driver.
