As we first reported earlier this morning, a vehicle crashed into Baskin Robbins on Oak Grove in Concord.

No life life threatening injuries reported.

UPDATE: The Concord Police tell that the driver was a 73 year old Walnut Creek resident. She was uninjured, but an employee inside suffered minor injuries.

The woman was trying to park when she hit the gas instead of the brake.

No. Baskin Robbins is the name of a chain of ice cream stores.

Time to take those blue placard drivers and move them away from the front of the stores.

mileena June 30, 2012 at 11:34 AM

I go there all the time. Are they closed for business temporarily?

I used to work at the Luckys next door in 1972 and had a Mint Chocolate Chip milk shake there everyday at that “31 flavors”, still my favorite. Lot of scoopes though that store in 40+ years.

A elderly lady drove into the Trader Joes Wall about 8 years ago. Stepped on the wrong pedal. I believe one crashed into what use to be The Lovin Spoonful many years ago which is in the same shopping center. It happens. Glad no one was hurt. Yep, I feel sorry for Terry also. He has had trouble with people shooting his windows in the past.

where was David Rosen this morning?
thank g*d Terry or employees wasnt hurt

No doubt it was caused because the accelerator did not have a warning label. I think it calls for the California Legislature to step in and mandate them on all accelerators … Printed in 3 languages and Braille.

My son works there and unfortunately someone was injured and is at the hospital.

That shopping center is such a traffic mess. I feel bad for the Lady, it was an accident and could happen to anyone.
Be nice

RIP baskin robins and thank you for everything

They need cement parking bumpers to stop the cars, Hello!

Rooster Head June 30, 2012 at 2:32 PM

That’s a rocky-road way to start the day, but at least she didn’t try to banana-split after the accident.

Cowellian June 30, 2012 at 2:39 PM

I feel bad for the employee that got hit. But yeah, I guess it could happen to anyone who can’t tell the difference between the gas pedal and the brake pedal.

details please June 30, 2012 at 2:48 PM

i worked at that store up until a week ago, can you please list the name of the person injured

snaggletooth June 30, 2012 at 2:48 PM

There is structural damage to the building and the business will be closed for some time.

What a shame for the owner to lose business at the start of summer.

>>But yeah, I guess it could happen to anyone who can’t tell the difference between the gas pedal and the brake pedal.<<

They need a copy of "The Horizontal Pedal on The Left for Dummies" (Automatic Transmission version)

I got shots of the mess, going through them now

leo June 30, 2012 at 3:45 PM

The minute you see that headline you knew the driver had to be old or drunk

Dex June 30, 2012 at 4:05 PM

I hope all the ice cream is ok

Rebel June 30, 2012 at 4:08 PM

I hope the driver’s license is revoked!

Thanks for the photo Mandy!

Radar June 30, 2012 at 5:10 PM

Mayor you got mail!

J June 30, 2012 at 5:37 PM

Old people need to stay off the road. Take their license away and band all of them from ever driving a vehicle again.

s June 30, 2012 at 5:54 PM

@ details Pls Zorica was injured. She is ok and hm now

stu June 30, 2012 at 6:57 PM

V June 30, 2012 at 9:48 PM

B. Robbins June 30, 2012 at 9:55 PM

Dem Babies June 30, 2012 at 10:50 PM
