A woman was able to avoid serious injury after a Wednesday morning crash, but the Home Consignment Depot on Hartnell Avenue in Redding was not as fortunate.

Police say the driver, an elderly Redding woman crashed her white Subaru into the store around 11 a.m. The woman and her dog were out of the car and appeared to be ok, but the car came to rest inside the store and damaged some of the antiques being sold by the store.

There were employees and customers inside the store, but nobody was near the area the car slammed into and everyone was able to avoid injury.

Police say the woman was trying to park when she for some reason pushed the gas, accelerating into the store.

A building inspector has been called to the scene and an investigation is ongoing.
