Car crashes through U-Stop near 33rd and Superior

A car crashed through the front of a Lincoln convenience store Friday. 

Police and fire crews responded to the U-Stop near 33rd and Superior around 3:30 p.m. 

Authorities said the driver was driving through the pump area when they accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake. 

No injuries were reported, but a clerk told Channel 8 Eyewitness News the car stopped only inches away from their desk inside the store. 

The damage estimate to the store is $5,000-$7,000. Estimated damage to the vehicle was $1,000. 

The store remained open and building inspectors were working to determine if it was stable.
