Driver crashes vehicle into car-care center on 281

Car shop crashAn 81-year-old woman is OK after crashing her car Feb. 7 inside the Crossroad Auto Care Center, located at U.S. 281 and RR 1431, in Marble Falls. Police say the woman was taking her 2004 Saturn Ion in for repairs about 11:30 a.m. when she stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake in the parking lot. The city building inspector examined the building before crews pried the car from the side wall of the shop. The business remained open. Staff photo by Connie Swinney
