Woman pushes gas instead of brake, crashes into Grand Haven business

Car crashes into building in Grand Haven

GRAND HAVEN, MICH. - Two women are recovering after a car drove into a business in Grand Haven. One was hurt, the other shaken up.

A 39-year-old woman from Ferrysburg crashed into Jeske Pool Services just before 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23.

She told WZZM 13's Jaleesa Irizarry she had been driving with her learner's permit when the crash occurred -- she just got it three days ago. She said the accident was an honest mistake, that she pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake.

The woman who was working inside the store, 59 from Whitehall, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. She has since been released. The driver said she was friends with her and was scared after the crash.

The Grand Haven Department of Public Safety said the driver was cited for causing the accident.
