A Taylorsville teenager jumped the curb with her parents’ car and struck the front of a gas station in Elk Creek Monday afternoon.
The 16-year-old, whose name was withheld because she is a juvenile, told police that she pressed her foot on the gas pedal when she meant to hit the brake.
Jacquie Dell, of Louisville, was exiting Elmar’s BP on KY 155 when she saw the car approaching.
“I went to push the door open and saw her coming. That’s when I took a step to the left and everything came smashing off the wall,” said Dell.
