No one was injured Saturday after an elderly woman plunged into a Texarkana Texas duplex on her way to the car wash, but it sure was messy. 

According to Texarkana Texas police, the woman confused the accelerator and brake pedals as she was trying to enter the Zips Car Wash on North Stateline.

Unfortunately, instead of stopping as she intended, her red Cadillac jumped the curb, drove through two privacy fences behind the business, coming to an abrupt halt after hitting a brick wall on Magnolia Street.

Luckily, no one was hurt, but the fence and duplex didn’t fare nearly as well.
