EVERETT, Wash. -- An SUV smashed through the front of a shoe store in Everett, barely missing the clerk.

Police say the driver accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake and crashed through Althea's Footwear Solutions. The SUV then plowed into the counter, as the clerk jumped out of the way.

The manager said the driver and her husband were shaken up, but otherwise OK.

The manager also said that 90 percent of the time, there is someone sitting in a chair at the end of the counter that took a direct hit.

Luckily, no one was sitting there at the time.
