A driver and store employees all escaped serious injury when a car slammed into an auto parts store in west Harris County.

Shortly after 10am, a driver ran his car all the way into the Advanced Auto Parts building in the 2200 block of Mason. It appears the driver hit the gas instead of the brakes.

The car went through the window by the front door fairly neatly, with more damage caused, it appeared, during the removal of the vehicle.

The driver suffered minor injuries. The employees in the store were closer to the back of the building at the time, and were unhurt.
