MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina discount store will be closed for a couple of weeks after a vehicle plowed into the building this morning.

Morehead City police say Shirley Henderson had minor injuries in the crash at the Dollar General on Bridges Street.

The 84-year-old woman was trying to park around 10:10 a.m. when she pushed the gas pedal instead of the brake, according to police.

The crash caused structural damage to both the outside and inside of the store. It appears a restroom at the store received most of the damage.

No one in the store was injured.

The crash is still being investigated by police.

It looks like this restroom received most of the damage inside.
