Clearwater, Florida - A newly licensed driver hit the gas instead of the brakes and rammed into an apartment building, police said.

The 27-year-old driver was not injured in the accident at 1767 S. Leo Lane.

Police said the driver was trying to move her car from a parking space when she hit the wrong pedal, sending the car lunging forward.

"She again tried to hit the brake harder and again hit the gas, causing her vehicle to jump the parking barrier and sending it through a wall," said public safety spokesperson Elizabeth Watts.

She was cited for careless driving. There were no other injuries reported.
