Car Strikes Building In Clayton

A car struck a building in Clayton this afternoon (Wednesday).  Clayton Police said Leah Jean Huggins, 36, of Clayton was attempting to park her 2011 Mazda and mistakenly pressed the accelerator instead of the brake pedal.

Her car lunged forward and crashed into the brick facade and glass entry doors to Wild Birds Unlimited at 101-476 Shotwell Road.

Huggins and a 9 month-old infant in the vehicle were not injured.   No one at the business was harmed.

Damage to the building was estimated at $5,000.

Huggins was cited for a safe movement violation.
