A South Granville Mac’s convenience store has been left seriously damaged after an elderly woman crashed her car through the front entrance Wednesday morning.
The collision occurred at about 9:50 a.m. at the shop on the corner of Hemlock Street and Broadway.
Vancouver Police Department Constable Steve Addison said a woman in her 70s was driving the car when it smashed through the glass door entrance.
"The cause of this incident appears to be driver error," he said.
He said there were no physical injuries and no charges or tickets were issued.
A witness, Vikram Biring, who was outside the shop when the crash occurred, told the Courier he believed the driver hit the accelerator instead of the brake as she was parking her car.
“She was parking and she must have hit the gas pedal and the car just hit into the store,” Biring explained.
“It was a very big, loud noise. It was scary.”
Fire fighters and ambulance teams were also in attendance.
