INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – We all know what could happen if you accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes, but we probably don't think it'll ever happen to us.

Well, one woman found out how one little mistake could turn into a bigger accident.

Indianapolis Fire Department officials responded to reports of a car into a building on E 54th Street around 11:30 Tuesday morning.


Officials say the woman, in her 60s, hit the gas instead of the brake and rear-ended the building.

Luckily, no one was hurt. The accident did cause some structural damage.

IFD Collapse Rescue Team responded for structural integrity. IMPD is investigating the accident.
