How to delete a panel via keyboard

I managed to create an overlapping panel and my system is behaving pretty wonky right now.

If I boot without my monitor plugged in, I can actually see the offending panel on my laptop screen.

However, my mouse isn't functioning properly, so I was wondering if there is a way to delete the offending panel using keyboard commands.

Ctrl+Alt+Tab allows me to get to the panel - but I'd like to the equivalent of a right-click, and then choose the delete panel option.

I'm running Red Hat Enterprise 6

Or.... is there a way I can restore the default panels through terminal?

Are you using gnome DE? If yes, can you share output of:-
~$ ps -aef | egrep "gnome-panel|panel"
Also which distro+version you're using?
