CAUGHT ON CAM: Truck plows through Lexington store. The driver of a white pickup truck hit the gas pedal instead of the brake causing his truck to go through a storefront

Nadine Maeser, WDBJ Channel 7

Store surveillance video shows two employees at the Cool Spring Organics shop standing near the checkout lines when a white pickup truck comes through the storefront.

According to the owner of the store, the two people inside the truck are regular customers. The driver apparently hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.

Notice that the driver has mashed down on the gas pedal.

    He "mashed down" on the pedal?

    What a turkey..

    Mike, go stand in a corner for that one. I'll bring the coffee (from the Bunn-O-Matic, AND in a Firegeezer mug, of course…)
