 Description of the problemOn 4/17/2019 at approximately 2:40pm i pulled into a small shopping center parking lot and turned right to park in a parking space facing a store front. I was going to a nail appointment, was early and not in a hurry. The car was moving very slowly under the car's own power as i entered the parking space. When i pressed the accelerator to pull to the front of the space the car suddenly accelerated at a high rate of speed jumping the curb, and landing on top of the sidewalk with the front end inside the store front window. I was braking from the moment of fast acceleration and could not get the car to slow down or stop until it was stopped by the store front glass wall. Fortunately no one was injured, but there was property damage to the glass and frame store front and to the front end of my car. The car was fully up on the sidewalk with the front end into the front of the pizza shop. The curb was approximately 8 inches high, so when the fireman reversed the car to move it to the parking space the entire underneath scraped along the bottom, fortunately there wasn't any damage to the battery pack. The police and fire department came to t he scene, and a police report was filed due to the property damage at the business. The fireman had to back the car out due to potential integrity issues with the damaged glass store front. I was not cited. A claim was filed with state farm. I can obtain the police report if needed. There weren't any other vehicles or people involved.
