YOU READ IT HERE FIRST (UPDATE 10 a.m. Wed.) : A 75-year-old Maryland woman told police her gas pedal got stuck after her sedan plowed into the front of a Montvale service station convenience mart on Chestnut Ridge Road.

No summonses were issued to the College Park driver in the Tuesday crash at the Exxon On the Run, although Police Chief Jeremy Abrams noted that an investigation was continuing.

She wasn’t injured, the chief told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Responders said that once the vehicle hit the wall of the store, the accelerator remained pinned — and the only thing keeping the Crown Victoria from entering entirely was the brick wall beneath the window.

Montvale’s building inspector responded along with borough police and EMTs.
