Police say the elderly woman was driving in the parking lot and accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake and crashed into a parked car which sent both cars flying into the Goodwill store.
Photos from inside the store show clothing racks destroyed and significant damage to both vehicles.
The son of the elderly woman said it happened fast.
“I managed to slam the car into park and turn the key off,” the son said.MORE NEWS: High Winds Expected To Continue Through Sunday For Parts Of SoCal
