A 59-year-old North Mankato woman was hit by a vehicle after the driver’s foot slipped and stepped on the accelerator. The vehicle then went through the Papa Murphy’s front door and lobby.
It happened just after 1:00 Tuesday afternoon. The driver, 42-year-old Fariyo Halene of North Mankato was attempting to park. Brenda Allen was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Mankato Public Safety says the incident was caused by driver error.
Papa Murphy’s on Riverfront Drive remains closed. They hope to open by the end of this week.
