TEMPE, Ariz. -- An elderly woman was fortunate she didn’t seriously injure herself or someone else when she accidentally hit her gas pedal Wednesday afternoon.

The woman was in front of a nail salon near Broadway and Mill Avenue when she mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake.

The woman’s car proceeded to go crashing into the building.

The woman was shaken up, but wasn’t hurt.

A teenager that was inside the salon was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
