CORAL GABLES, Fla. – A gray SUV crashed into a Barnes & Noble store Wednesday afternoon in Coral Gables.

Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Dunham said it appears the driver mistook the gas pedal for the brake before striking a pillar and crashing through the window of the store at 152 Miracle Mile.

One man at the scene told Local 10 News reporter Liane Morejon that his spouse is a manager at the store and was called in after the accident. 

Workers were seen cleaning up the mess after the vehicle was removed.

Authorities said one person inside the store was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center with minor injuries. 

The driver was not injured.
