A car smashed into a building on Westheimer near Fountainview

A driver plowed through three businesses in the Galleria area Wednesday morning. The driver says his car wouldn't stop, causing him to crash into a yogurt shop at Westheimer and Fountainview. He then made a right turn into a lab testing business next door and a French restaurant.

No one was hurt. Police suspect the driver may have been mistakenly hitting the gas pedal instead of the brake, sending the silver SUV deep into the strip center.

The businesses suffered considerable damage. The vehicle was still driveable when it was removed from the building.
