UPDATE: Pleasanton woman crashes into athletic facility near Raley's

No one injured in Sunday afternoon accident

A 49-year-old Pleasanton woman jumped a curb and crashed into the front window of Workout Express in the Raley's shopping center around 11 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Sgt. Michael Collins said the woman was intending to park and mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

In the process, the woman ran over a bike rack, destroying it, and hit the window of the store. Collins said there didn't appear to be any structural damage to the building.

Police said there was no mention of anyone else in the car, but it is possible that a child was in the car at the time. The woman was said to have minor injuries to her wrist, Collins said.

Neither alcohol nor drugs appeared to be involved in the crash, according to Collins.

Hmmmm, okay, now let me stereotype you: white, male, small-minded, racist, right-winged, and misogynistic.

Was I preaching? I thought I was just making an educated guess about the type of person who would post a comment like the one chuck posted.

You made some ugly and offensive stereotype statements. Chuck made a comment that doesn't seem to be based on anything in mentioned in the story.
