KENOSHA  — A woman crashed into a Kenosha gas station Friday after she thought the gas pedal in her car was the brake.

Anthony Perrine, the owner of the gas station at 5145 Sheridan Rd. in Kenosha, said the woman crashed full speed into the building but no one was hurt. However, Perrine said if she had been just a few feet over, she would have hit his team.

Right now, Perrine doesn't have an estimate on the damage costs but he knows it won't be cheap.

"We do have insurance but haven’t been able to get a hold of anyone yet for further instruction," Perrine said.

The crash took out almost the entire left side of the building, and a lot of the roof is caving in, according to Perrine.
