VALLEJO (CBS SF) — An elderly couple accidentally drove their car through the front doors of a Vallejo grocery store Thursday afternoon, a Vallejo fire spokesman said.

The car went through the doors of the Grocery Outlet at 66 Admiral Callaghan Lane around 2:45 p.m., Vallejo fire spokesman Mark Libby said.

The driver accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes, and drove the car entirely into the store.

Some customers inside suffered minor injuries from shattered glass and other debris that got sprayed in the impact, Libby said.

The couple in the car was unharmed.

The car was towed out of the building and the store was closed after the accident for cleanup and repair, Libby said.

Libby said fire officials determined the building had not sustained any structural damage.

An employee who picked up the phone at the store Thursday afternoon declined to comment on the accident or when the store would reopen.
