Sudden Acceleration: Galveston driver hits wrong pedal

No one was injured after a car crashed into a Regions Bank on Saturday.

A woman about 3 p.m. was parking a Pontiac Vibe in front of the bank, 6408 Interstate 45 in La Marque, when she accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes, Sgt. Reggie Rodriguez, of the La Marque Police Department, said.


Saturday was not the first time a car has driven into the bank.

Last year, a vehicle crashed through the front of the building in a similar accident, Phillips said.

Be careful with those pedals, people.

And NEVER concede you screwed up. Cry “sudden acceleration!” and express shock that the car suddenly behaved as if possessed. If you have a Toyota, even better!
