WACO (March 13, 2014) A pickup whose elderly driver evidently stepped on the accelerator rather than the brake crashed through the front of the Which Wich sandwich shop Thursday afternoon in Waco.

The Game Stop store next door to the shop was also damaged in the accident, which happened at around 3:20 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Wooded Acres and Bosque Boulevard.
Paramedics checked out the 74-year-old driver at the scene, but he did not require medical treatment.
No one else was injured.
The impact shattered the shop's glass door and an adjacent window.
Broken glass littered chairs, tables and the restaurant floor.
A second accident occurred nearby on Wooded Acres when a vehicle rear-ended a car whose driver stopped for an ambulance that was responding to the sandwich shop accident.
