BYRAM, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A close call Thursday night for a driver and assistant manager at a Byram Auto Parts store; a car plowed through a wall and into an office at the NAPA Auto Parts store at 5750 Terry Road.

The Byram Fire Chief says the driver's foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator.

Fire Chief, Marshall C. Robinson, Jr. said, "An employee had just recently been in that office and exited the office just prior to the accident".

"Very scary," said Kattie Partee, the mother of the driver. "You know you don't know what you're going to find until you get there. So we prayed all the way down the road, hoping for the best, and we thank God that no one got hurt."

The driver was checked out on the scene but declined medical treatment. The office area was heavily damaged.  

Chief Robinson says the police department will investigate the accident.
