LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Officials say a woman drove her car into a popular local ice cream shop on South Park Avenue just before 2:30 in the afternoon.

Police and firefighters responded to the scene of the accident, but say there were no injuries. One official who responded said the driver apparently stepped on the wrong pedal, crashing into the Dairy Queen.

Dairy Queen says the building sustained some major damage and was forced to close for at least one day. Crews are currently working to repair the building.

Police have yet to say if any charges will be filed against the driver. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
