NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A car crashed into a bakery at 12th and Burlington in North Kansas City Thursday morning.
Police said the woman driving the car accidentally pushed the gas pedal instead of the brake and crashed into Judi’s Bakery.
“It's not every day that you see a car do its own drive up window,” Debbie Gardner, a worker at the bakery said.
Gardner and her colleague, Courtney Desko, were inside the store at the time of the crash.
A woman came in she was pretty shaken up,” Desko said. “She started crying and said that she crashed into our building."
No one was hurt, but it could have been a different ending if the bakery had been making bread Thursday morning—Gardner would have been in the car's path.
“A lot of people came over, a lot of people called —a lot of businesses called to make sure that everyone was ok which was really sweet,” Desko said.
This isn't Judi’s first trouble in 35 years of selling baked goodies. The business has survived a previous car crash and an oven explosion in the '80s.
It'll be easily repaired--considering. They'll replace the base, the windows, the framing, the glass, and we'll go back in business,” Judi White, the bakery’s owner said.
White expects to commence bread production once again starting Monday.
