A vehicle ended up inside a Kitchener storefront Saturday evening after crashing through the window.
The incident occurred on Fairway Road South, between Wilson Avenue and Manitou Drive just before 7 p.m.
Waterloo Regional Police say the driver, a 67-year-old woman, was parking the car and ended up crashing through the glass storefront when she pressed the gas instead of the brake.
Fire fighters knocked out the remaining glass window so a tow truck was able to pull the vehicle out.
An employee suffered minor injuries from flying glass. The driver was not injured.
The store owner told CTV that damages are over $30,000 to the store, but are still being assessed.
He is thankful that all staff members are okay, and is making counselling services available to staff.
Police did not say whether or not charges would be laid.
