CUMMING, Ga. — A woman went to park her 2006 Lexus sport utility vehicle, but hit the gas instead of the brake, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

At about 1 p.m. Aug. 1, a woman told officers she drove to the Health Department, 428 Canton Highway, and when she was pulling into a parking space, she accelerated too much.

The SUV went through the bushes and crashed into the building.

Officers said the building had exterior and some interior damage. The bricks were damaged and pushed inward and the sheet rock inside was cracked and separated near the men’s bathroom.

Officers did not want to move the SUV until a building inspector checked on the structure.
