HERMISTON — A driver didn’t stop at Gotta Stop, ramming her vehicle into the side of the convenience store Saturday night.

Lorena Wyatt, 59, from Plymouth, Wash., hit the south side of the Gotta Stop Mini Mart, part of a Chevron gas station at 1580 W Highland Avenue, with her 2013 Chevrolet Impala.

According to a report by the Hermiston Police Department, the crash was caused by Wyatt accidentally hitting the gas pedal instead of the brake. There were no signs she was impaired and she was not cited.

The store and gas station remain open despite the indentation in the front of the building.
