A car careened onto a sidewalk in Southwest Philadelphia late Monday, striking a storefront in the 6400 block of Woodland Avenue. It happened when the woman behind the wheel stepped on the gas instead of the brake. Police say she struck her husband on the sidewalk as the car lurched forward.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.
