ONLY ON CVP: A 52-year-old Ridgewood woman who said her foot got stuck under the brake pedal drove her Lexus sedan through a closed door of her garage, out the back wall, through a neighbor’s yard and chain link fence, down the block and back into her driveway today.

The Walthery Avenue resident wasn’t injured in the late afternoon mishap, which brought village police, firefighters, EMS workers and a code inspector.

Freeing her foot, the woman turned the car around in her neighbor’s backyard and drove down their driveway to the street and back to her house.

She then dialed 911.

The vehicle sustained moderate to heavy front-end and undercarriage damage.

The code inspector deemed the garage structurally sound, despite the heavily damaged back wall.

Village police were investigating.
