A 30-year-old student driver took a weekend drive right into the Weekends clothing store off Boulder's Pearl Street Mall this afternoon.

Boulder police Sgt. Jim MacPherson said the driver entered Broadway from Lawry Lane around 1:40 p.m., heading north, when things quickly spiraled out of control.

"He mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake as he turned onto Broadway," MacPherson said.

The driver, whose name was not immediately released, was cited with inattentive driving.

He was accompanied by a Boulder Driving Academy instructor at the time of the accident.

No one was injured, MacPherson said, and damage to the Weekends building, at 1200 Pearl St., appeared minimal.
