A 50-year-old woman who believed her car was in reverse, instead crashed forward into a Northridge pharmacy, slightly injuring two people inside the store, a police sergeant said Tuesday.
The accident took place at 5:47 p.m. Monday at 9250 Reseda Blvd., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Brian Humphrey.
“Two people were in the store at the time of the accident,” said Los Angeles Police Sgt. David Delgado of Valley Traffic Division. “They were struck by debris from the crash. They suffered minor injuries. They were treated at the scene and released. They were not hospitalized.”
The driver was not injured in the crash, Delgado said.
“She became confused between the gas pedal and the brake,” Delgado said. “She thought she was in reverse when she was actually in drive. So when she hit the gas pedal the car moved forward and crashed into the building.”
The driver was not cited, Delgado said.
City building and safety authorities were called to check the condition of the building. Their findings were not known.
