At about 3 o’clock Thursday afternoon, an elderly woman mistook the gas pedal for the brake on her minivan, and crashed through the front window of the Orange Street Food Farm. The van took out a display of flowers outside the store, drove over a concrete pillar, crashed through the storefront windows, struck a checkout stand and demolished a large wine display.

I spoke with Lieutenant Richard Stepper with the Missoula Police Department who was the lead investigator at the scene. He has details of the crash below..
