CLINTON — A driver and a store employee escaped injury Thursday afternoon when a pickup truck crashed through a wall and a plate glass window of an auto parts business.

Assistant Police Chief Darren Kilcrease said the driver accidentally stepped on the gas pedal of his 2007 pickup truck instead of the brake as he drove up to Clinton Auto Parts, 10423 Plank Road, about 12:30 p.m.

Neither the driver, George Brill, 81, of Clinton, nor an employee at the store’s counter was injured, although the truck hitt the counter, Kilcrease said.
