OLATHE, Kan. (AP) _ Police in northeast Kansas are investigating why a woman smashed her car into a payday loan store, pinning an employee behind a desk.

KCTV reports the incident happened around 10 a.m. Thursday at Ameribest Payday Loans and Check Cashing, located in a strip mall in the city of Olathe (oh-LAY'-thuh).

Police said the 65-year-old driver was trying to park her car but instead crashed through the store's front window and an interior wall. A female employee suffered an ankle injury and was briefly pinned by her desk and debris. She was taken to a hospital to be checked.

Authorities are investigating whether the driver confused the brake and gas pedal.
