A scary moment for a motorist in Hillsboro yesterday, when the driver was unable to get his vehicle stopped- depsite applying the brakes.

Police officers responded to a traffic accident at the intersection of Collins Avenue and North High Street, when they found that 27-year-old Charles Whaley of Hillsboro was trying to slow his 2008 Nissan, when the brake peddle went all the way to the floor board, but the car struck another vehicle driven by 65-year-old Carol Kidder of Peebles.

No injuries reported, but Whaley was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device.
