PLATTSBURGH — A Willsboro woman was injured Jan. 13 in a one-car accident.
At about 10:32 a.m., Jean Holihan, 80, had stopped at the ticket booth at Eco Car Wash off Cornelia Street in Plattsburgh to buy a car wash ticket, Plattsburgh City Police said.
After paying, Holihan pushed the gas pedal instead of the brake by mistake and her vehicle shot forward, striking the yellow bar that lifts up after a customer pays for a car wash, police said.
Holihan’s vehicle drove over a snowbank and struck a small group of trees near Plattsburgh Ford, police said.
Debris fell onto the hoods of the cars parked in the dealership’s lot, police said.
Holihan complained of back pain and was taken to CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh.
No tickets were issued.
