The front of the MediCenter building in Kenai was damaged when a driver backed onto the pavement and was lodged between the siding and a pillar on Monday afternoon.
No one was injured, said officials from the Kenai Police Department and Kenai Fire Department, which both responded to the scene.
A woman was backing out of the MediCenter parking lot in a blue Subaru station wagon when the accident happened, said Sgt. Ben Langham with Kenai Police. She was wearing a medical boot on her foot, and hit the gas when she attempted to hit the breaks, he said.
“As she had her foot on the gas, it accelerated rapidly, doing a u-shaped turn, striking a vehicle that was parked in front of the MediCenter, and ultimately striking the building where it came to a rest,” Langham said.
Langham said he did not know the woman’s age.
On scene, firefighters knocked the two pillars at the MediCenter’s front entrance back into place before guiding the Subaru out and away from the building.
