There was a bit of both good and bad luck for Friday the 13th, as an apparent malfunction caused a vehicle to drive into the storefront of the Pella Fareway Friday morning. Pella Police Officer Tim Donelson tells KNIA/KRLS that the driver of the vehicle was pulling into a parking spot when the accelerator stuck – sending the vehicle over the curb and into a window. The accident happened shortly before 10:20 a.m. Friday morning.

Witnesses inside the store said the accident sounded like “an explosion.” Customers and employees inside the store received quite a scare, but there were no injuries and no charges will be filed in the accident.
