WATCH: Car slams into store, narrowly misses elderly woman
'Everything seems pretty calm inside as a woman pushes her shopping cart in front of the counter. But just as she backs up, a car comes crashing right through the front of the store, narrowly missing her.'
WPTV says the driver, 84-year-old Margaret Underwood, had just backed up into another car in the parking lot before mistakenly hitting the gas and plowing into the store, nearly slamming into 80-year-old Adrienne Watkins.
According to Bay News 9, both women were just fine aside from a few cuts and bruises, and Adrienne Watkins says she's thanking a higher power for this.
'I looked up and I thought, 'Oh God, you've taken care of me. Thank you.' He was really working.'
WFLA explains the CVS drugstore was not so lucky.
'It caused more than $65,000 in damages to the store and at least a day closed for repairs.'
Despite the scare, Watkins joked the incident prevented her from indulging in the sweets at the counter.
'Looking at some candy, which I should not have been, so I guess God was telling me, you know, 'Don't do it.'
Police gave Underwood a ticket for improper backing and careless driving.
