Car crashes into Dubuque store-front

DUBUQUE (Dubuque Telegraph Herald & KWWL) -- A Dubuqe woman won't soon forget how a simple dog walk Thursday nearly put her in the hospital.

Dubuque police say a car crashed into a store, narrowly missing a woman who was walking her dog on the sidewalk.

Police say the accident happened about 11:30 a.m. Thursday when the driver accidentally put the car into drive instead of reverse.

Video surveillance at Payday Partners shows that a woman walking her dog in a pink sweater paused before continuing forward just as the car slammed into the store.

Glass and bricks scattered across the floor, but officials say the damage was only cosmetic.

Police haven't released the driver's name.

No one was hurt.
