A driver escaped serious injury when his SUV plowed out of a Butler Township car wash and crashed into the building next door.
John Wuycheck, 67, of Pittsburgh told police he was getting his car washed late Wednesday morning at Morgan’s Car Wash on New Castle Road when he thought his vehicle was in park. His foot hit the gas pedal, which accelerated the SUV through the closed car wash bay door.
Wuycheck told officers he didn’t have time to hit the brakes and his SUV ended up smashing through a fence and crashing into the building next door, which houses six apartments and the Butler Cleaners and Coin Laundromat.
That building was evacuated and inspected, and people were eventually allowed back inside. Wuycheck was not taken to the hospital. His SUV was towed.
