Oops, wrong pedal. Minivan crashes into Kent apartment

A driver who stepped on the wrong pedal plowed through a first-floor apartment in Kent on Thursday but no one was hurt, the Kent Fire Department said Friday.

The crash occurred about 8:40 p.m. in the 11300 block of Kent Kangley Road.

The driver stepped on the gas pedal while parked and didn’t realize the minivan was in gear, officials said. It lurched forward and knocked down several walls in the apartment.

No one was home inside the apartment and the driver was not seriously injured.

Residents in the apartment above were moved so it could be inspected for structural damage.
