Kansas Woman Drives Car Up Stairs, Hits Building, Rolls Over

From JEMS:

TOPEKA, Kan. — A woman escaped serious injury Wednesday evening during a wild ride in which she accidentally applied the accelerator instead of her brakes and went up a small flight of stairs before ultimately coming to rest upside down.

First responders were sent about 6:50 p.m. to the 1100 block of S.E. Washington on a report of a single-vehicle rollover.

Topeka police first to the location found a black four-door passenger car on its top in the grass next to a parking lot for Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, 1100 S.E. Washington.

A Topeka police officer said the woman was attempting to park in a stall on the east side of the church when she accidentally hit the gas pedal. The vehicle went over a concrete parking block, up a flight of concrete stairs and crashed into the building before rolling off the side of the steps and onto its top.
