PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. -- A Prescott Valley woman told police that her car's gas pedal got stuck before she crashed through the front of a fitness center early Wednesday morning.

Prescott Valley police officers responded to a report of a possible accident in the area of Viewpoint Drive and Highway 89A at about 2:30 a.m. and discovered that Snap Fitness had sustained heavy damage to the front entrance.

Further investigation revealed that a vehicle had driven through the front entrance, continued on through the business and out the back of the building.

Police said there was damage to fitness equipment, the rear exit door and wall, and a fence behind the building.

The suspect vehicle was not on scene, but the driver that had caused the damage called in to report the accident while police were investigating. Officers went to the driver's home.

Cindy Snyder, 47, told them she had gone to Snap Fitness to work out and when she arrived, the gas pedal on her 2001 Honda four-door sedan became stuck and her vehicle accelerated through the front of the building.

Police said Snyder could not remember how she actually exited the building. She said she drove home after the accident.

Snyder's vehicle sustained heavy front-end damage, but she reported that she was not injured.

Officers found no signs of impairment.

Police said there were no other patrons in the building when the accident occurred.

Charges are still pending as investigators review the incident.
