No injuries were reported in this solo-vehicle crash early Tuesday morning. Watsonville Police Sgt. Mike Ridgway said a motorist accidentally stepped on the gas instead of the brake pedal in her Honda sedan around 6:30am. Her car plowed through a fence as shown here on the 100 block of W. Lake Ave. The car continued through a parking lot and then smashed through another wood fence and hedge row. The car next raced across a parking lot and came to a rest against a laundromat on the 200 block of Rodriguez Street. The incident is still under investigation.
