According to reports, the 85 year-old driver reversed quickly, crashing into another vehicle in the parking lot.  After doing so, instead of hitting the brake, may have mistakenly hit the gas pedal and put the car into drive, going quickly into the front of the T-Mobile store.

A witness to the event, says the car, which had gone completely through the window into the store, narrowly missed at least one customer before coming to a stop.

The driver was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution. No one else was injured.
