I was in the store when this happened, the female driver was very shook up and I ran over to Starbucks and was able to get her a water and when i asked what happened she said the car wouldn't stop. Since the door to the car was open I saw that the floor mat was on the accelerator and I pointed that out to her before I left.

Poor thing! She mustve been petrified! I would have been for sure. Thank God she and everyone else are ok!

I must say that she should thank the Lord Jesus that no one was walking in between her car and the store. She didn't hurt anyone and hopefully her injuries are very minor. I can imagine that to be a very scary incident but she is tremendously blessed!
