    Tesla Driver Plows Into Mom-and-Pop-Liquor Store in Sunnyvale

    A Tesla driver plowed into Liquor & Foot Mart in Sunnyvale on Thursday, July 16, 2015.

    A driver accidentally hit the accelerator on his Tesla Thursday night, and plowed into a mom-and-pop liquor store in Sunnyvale.

    The crash occurred about 9 p.m. at Liquor and Food Mart at 163 E. Fremont Ave.

    The driver, who didn’t want to be identified, told NBC Bay Area that he thought he was hitting the brake when he instead revved up, smashing into the glass panes of the store.

    The store owner's son, Jason Matthew, told NBC Bay Area they’d be closed "indefinately" because of the structural damage to the building."To see so much carnage and damage is heartwrenching," he said.

    There was no immediate word on whether there would be any fines or arrests.
