Hitting the gas instead of the break put a mini van through the plate glass window of Lickety Split ice cream shop, 1259 Post Drive, Belmont, Suite F, on Saturday, May 2.

Witnesses say a family had been sitting at the table in front of the window minutes before the crash, and that the children had left their seats to look something up in a Bible at the shop. The elderly drivers waited in the vehicle until Kent County Sheriff deputies arrived on the scene.
