SUV Crashes into Del. Music Shop

WILMINGTON, Del.– Delaware State Police say they are investigating a crash in which an SUV struck a music store west of Wilmington.

Troopers said the incident occurred at approximately 7:40 a.m. Wednesday as Marie Betts, 62, of Wilmington, was operating a 2015 Mazda CX5 in the parking lot of the Midway Plaza Shopping Center, located at 4600 Kirkwood Highway. Police said that as Betts attempted to park in front of the Music and Arts Store, she mistook the vehicle’s gas pedal for its brake pedal and accelerated into the front of the store. The Mazda then entered the store and traveled approximately 15 feet before coming to a stop, police said.

Betts was removed from the scene and transported to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center as a precaution, according to investigators, who added that there were no other injuries as a result of the crash.

This crash is still under investigation. Inspectors from New Castle County responded to the scene in order to assess the extent of the damage to the building.
