An elderly driver mistakenly selected the wrong gear and accidentally bounced her car off the front of a drug store this morning.
The incident happened at 11:10 a.m. when the woman, who was returning from a doctor’s appointment, put her 2009 Audi into “Drive” instead of “Reverse” when she attempted to back out of her parking stall in front of the Pharmasave Drug store on Main St. in West Kelowna.
Damage to the woman’s vehicle was moderate and the driver suffered no injury. One of the Drug Store windows was smashed and there was some damage to the structure.
No Motor Vehicle Act charge was applied.
