Customer Hits Wrong Pedal, Crashes Into Car Dealership

A big crash was a close call at a Longview car dealership.  A man drove his car into the showroom.

The folks at Alford Automotive Center say the elderly gentleman was looking to buy a car. When the man was about to pull away, his foot hit the gas. Those inside the dealership couldn't believe what they saw.

Alford salesperson Larrison Huey said, "It came through and he was in the middle of the showroom. But no one was hurt. The good thing is we always look for advertising, we just don't look for it this way!"

Insurance will take care of the damage. Alford Automotive Group said they are still going to give him the full value on his now slightly-damaged trade-in.
