This red Mazda, with Arkansas plates, found itself wedged in between a pillar and the entrance of Infinite Lasers LLC, near McGuire's, Tuesday morning after the driver ran onto the walkway.

Michael Locht from Florida Financial Services said his office is actually in the front of a nearby unit and he and a client saw the incident happen.

"She pulled into the parking place and appeared to be coming in too quick, and maybe confused the pedals," he said. "She did a great job of turning the wheel so she would avoid the building."

"It got my customer a little excited," Locht added. "He was the first one out there and checked on the woman."

Battalion Chief Jimmy Taylor from the Destin Fire Control District told The Log "there were no injuries and she refused treatment."
