A driver with a broken leg on Wednesday apparently accidentally crashed her pickup truck into Rosetti's Liquor Barrel on Hwy. 90 in Bay St. Louis

No one was injured Wednesday afternoon when a Ford F250 pick-up truck crashed into the front of Rosetti’s Liquor Barrel on Hwy. 90 in Bay St. Louis.

The accident occurred at around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Officers at the scene said the accident apparently occurred because the woman driving the truck had a broken leg and was wearing a cast with a walking boot. The boot apparently got stuck on the accelerator, causing the truck to run into the building, smashing the front window and part of the wall.

Since it was an accident, no charges were filed, and police have not yet released the name of the driver.

Officers of the Bay St. Louis Police Department and Bay St. Louis Fire Department responded to the scene.

“We’ll be open this afternoon,” John Rosetti said Thursday. “We’re really thankful to the city of Bay St. Louis, the Bay St. Louis Fire Department, the Bay St. Louis Police Department, Jamie Favre and a lot of friends and volunteers who donated their help. We would have never been able to reopen so quickly without them.”
