INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 21, 2015) – A driver crashed into the side of a south side Indianapolis CVS location—and it was a familiar story for workers there.

It was the second time in a year that it’s happened at the business.

The driver, a 60-year-old woman, said she hit the gas instead of the brake while trying to park. She was wearing a medical boot and couldn’t clearly feel the pedals, she told the Indianapolis Fire Department.

The crash happened around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the store located at 505 E. Thompson Rd.

IFD said the crash resulted in significant damage, causing the interior cosmetic products wall to collapse on the north side of the building.

There were 10 customers and five employees inside at the time, according to the store manager. No one was hurt.

The IFD Collapse Rescue Team went to the business but said the damage didn’t involve a load bearing wall. IFD advised the manager to close the CVS until repairs could be made.

The woman’s car sustained a broken windshield and scratches.
