(Clarinda) A Clarinda woman was transported to the hospital after the vehicle she was driving slammed into an apartment building.
Clarinda Police say 85-year-old Violette Reye Henneman pulled into the parking stall at 402 Willow Street. Henneman accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake and drove over the curb and down the yard into the apartment building. Police say Henneman apparently still had her foot on the gas pedal while the vehicle was inside the building because there was a hole in the carpet where the front tire spun repeatedly.
Henneman told authorities that she was not hurt; however she was transported to Clarinda Regional Hospital for examination anyway.
