The Lyon County Sheriff's Office says 79-year-old Arlene DeBeer was attempting to make a U-turn on main street to park in front of the George Community Room when she apparently hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. The vehicle collided with the southwest side of a hardware store building.

DeBeer complained of minor pain and was taken by private vehicle to Sanford Rock Rapids. 

The vehicle DeBeer was driving was totaled; damage to the building was estimated at $5,000. 

The collision took place shortly before noon.
