No one was injured after a woman accidentally drove her SUV into a business in a shopping complex in Third Lake Wednesday morning.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday to Gamers HQ, 34165 North Route 45 in Third Lake, for a report of a car into a building.

Lake County Sheriff Spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said that a 72-year-old woman was driving a 2015 Lexus SUV.

Covelli said the woman works at a business in the shopping complex. She realized she left something inside, so she parked in front of the business.

The woman got back into her car and thought she put her car in reverse, but it was actually in drive, Covelli said. The car crashed through the building, which was unoccupied at the time.

The woman declined transport to the hospital after being evaluated at the scene by paramedics.

A building inspect evaluated the building stability and a board-up company secured the storefront. Covelli said the woman was not cited.
