VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A Valdosta business remains closed after a car ran into it Monday night. 

It happened just before seven at WP Wireless & More on East Central Avenue. A 58 year old woman was trying to leave the parking lot when the gas pedal in her car got stuck.  

"Last night just before 7 p.m., a young lady was in the parking lot at 516 East Central Avenue and accidentally got the accelerator stuck and ran into the building.  I believe, according to the building inspector that came out, felt that the building had possible structural damage. So, until they get that repaired, they'll probably be closed for business," said Valdosta Police Lt. Aaron Kirk.  

No injuries were reported.
