According to an accident report filed by South Boston Police Cpl. M. W. Bowen, Elizabeth S. Bomar was driving a 2004 Toyota Four Runner and was backing out of the driveway into the street when she said the gas pedal got stuck between her foot and the brake causing the vehicle to spin around and strike a utility pole before hitting a parked 2007 Hyundai in the rear passenger fender. 

Bomar was not injured.

Bowen estimated damage to the Toyota at $1,500, damage to the Hyundai at $1,000, and damage to the utility pole belonging to Dominion Power at $150.
