For The Second Time In As Many Days Car Crashes Into Building

For the second time in as many days a car smashes into a local business.

Police say 77–year–old Alma Baeyens was pulling into a parking spot at Clothes Closet when her foot slipped off the brake and hit the gas, that sent her car crashing into the store.

Worried that the wall might buckle, everyone in the store was evacuated. No one was injured in the crash and officials say unfortunately this types of mistake is common.

Baeyens was cited for careless driving and the State of Colorado will be re–evaluating her driving status. Baeyens told police in 60 years she's only had one ticket.
