DRAPER, Utah -- A 70-year-old man drove into a Draper gas station store after hitting the gas instead of the brake.

The man was attempting to park his car in front of the Holiday Oil gas station at 12300 South 300 East.

Sgt. Chad Carpenter, Draper Police Department, said the man mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal and inched his way into the store.

No one was injured in the incident. The store received significant damage to its doors.
