BRADENTON -- A woman crashed her car into the Manatee County Property Appraiser building while trying to park in a handicap spot Wednesday morning.
The woman was trying to turn into a parking spot when she hit the accelerator instead of her breaks at about 11:05 a.m. She drove over the curb and in a circle in the parking lot before crashing into a concrete structure around the walkway to the property appraiser building, according to Tom Orehowsky, a witness on scene.
"I'm guessing she panicked and just didn't let her foot up," Orehowsky said.
Orehowsky said he ran over and checked on the woman, had her turn off the engine and went inside to have them call 911.
