Surprise ‘visit’

Fatima Cruz of Kearny was maneuvering her car through the parking lot at Jack’s IGA shopping center, at Schuyler Ave. and the Belleville Turnpike, North Arlington, at about 7:30 a.m. last Thursday when she accidentally stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake, mounted the curb and crashed through the plate glass window of Garden Nails, police said. Cruz and two pedestrians, both of Newark, were treated at the scene by the borough EMS. No charges were filed against the driver, police said.
