In what is likely the worst parallel-parking job of the year in downtown San Luis Obispo, on Wednesday afternoon a woman wedged her car between a tree and a clothing store on Higuera Street. [KSBY]
San Luis Obispo police say the woman confused the gas and brake pedals as she was attempting to park. Her four-door sedan clipped a tree and hit the exterior of clothing store Lulu Luxe, located in the 800 block of Higuera Street.
Firefighters responded and used the Jaws of Life to extricate the woman from her car. At the time, the driver was believed to have a leg injury, but she turned out to be in good condition.
No other people suffered injuries in the crash. The Lulu Luxe building sustained only minor damage.
An arborist examined the tree that was hit and determined it to be fine.
