A driver told police her foot slipped from the brake to the gas pedal of her 1999 Buick as she was pulling into a parking space Monday afternoon, causing the front of her car to crash into a Grand Forks butcher shop.


The car smashed the front of Grand City Halal Meat at 1907 S. Washington St., said Del Scholler who manages the strip mall that houses the store. The car went about two feet into the store, destroying plate-glass windows and knocking bricks loose, Scholler said.
