Authorities told KHOU that the accident was a result of the driver hitting the gas pedal instead of the brake. While first responders required the Jaws of Life to extricate the driver from the vehicle, the driver did not suffer serious injuries, KHOU reported.

The building adjacent to the parking garage sustained minor damage, authorities said.
