POULSBO — Police ruled out drugs or alcohol after a car crashed into a liquor store Feb. 19 around 1 p.m.

"(It) just appears to be bad footwork," Poulsbo Deputy Chief Bob Wright said.

The crash occurred at High Spirits in the 19000 block of 7th Avenue.

The four-door sedan was driven by a 69-year-old man who accidentally pressed the accelerator pedal instead of the brake as he pulled up in front of the building, Wright said.

The car lurched forward and into a wall next to the business' front door. The incident left a hole in the wall, but the structure remained intact.

There were no injuries.
