Just after 2 p.m. on Thursday, a 70-year-old man hit the wrong pedal while traveling southbound on South Broadway Avenue in Tyler. Police say the driver mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake and lost control of his vehicle, sending the vehicle careening into a construction barrier.

Emergency crews responded to the scene, but the driver was not transported to the hospital. The driver was cited for failure to control his vehicle.
