“A 46-year-old female driver lost control of her vehicle in the parking lot, struck a pedestrian and then struck two businesses in the plaza,” police said in an email to CTV News.

The 30-year-old pedestrian was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.

The Pet Valu location beside the driving school reported around $5,000 damage to products and shelving inside the store.
