A man crashed his van into a Woodside real estate office on Roosevelt Avenue this morning but walked away unscathed.

The 36-year-old drove the van into Wagner & Kelly Real Estate, located at 60-01 Roosevelt Ave, at around 8:20 a.m., after losing control of the vehicle, according to police.

The driver told police that the gas pedal of the van got pinned down causing him to crash through the front door of the building.

There was nobody inside the premises or walking on the sidewalk when the crash occurred, police said.

The driver did not sustain any injuries although there was damage done to the property.

Witnesses saw the driver’s airbag activated as a result of the incident.

No arrests have been made and police are treating the incident as an accident.

this sounds fishy. the brakes of a car are more than sufficient to slow it down, even with the accelerator pinned to the floor. e.g. burnouts – the car is barely moving forward with the wheels spinning. the brakes are holding the car back.

even in the case of the toyota unintended acceleration lawsuit – it was determined to be driver error / floormats. standing on the brakes would have slowed the car down, or shifting into neutral.

this person was under the influence of something, or took his attention off the road (phone).
