gUlf Report Today
An elderly woman walked straight into a bakery in New York City, police said on Tuesday. Kathryn Ford, 82, accidentally stepped on the gas pedal instead of applying the brakes.
The incident happened at Dolce and Biscotti in Clifton Park. CCTV footage showed a sedan entering the store.
Fortunately, no one was at the counter. The woman continued to press the pedal until a man helped her shut off the power.
Mary Baldi-Fron, owner and executive chef of Dolce and Biscotti said on Facebook: “24 hours have passed since our baking accident and we are even more amazed and grateful that my staff and I have had many guardian angels watching over on all of us.
The attached video was retrieved today and shows how horrible it was for everyone. Fortunately, none of us, including the wonderful woman in the car, were seriously injured. The bakery can be rebuilt and we thank you all for your warm wishes, calls for support and kind comments. It means so much.

Finally, a special thanks to Dan from Zachary’s Pastry Shop in East Greenbush for coming to our aid, helping many of my customers with orders we couldn’t fill.
