Watch: Woman crashes car into CVS store

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

An elderly woman lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a Winter Haven CVS store, narrowly grazing a customer inside, police said Thursday.

It happened Wednesday afternoon at a location on State Road 540.

The woman driving was 84-year-old Margaret Underwood, police said. She was in a 2008 Chevy Impala and came barreling through the front. Photos from the scene show that she went a significant distance inside the store.

Surveillance video shows she nearly hit an 80-year-old woman who was shopping inside at the front counter. The woman suffered some minor injuries.

Underwood apparently backed into a Chevy Suburban just moments before that in the parking lot. Police say she dropped her husband off at CVS and waited for him in the car.

When he returned, she accidentally backed into the Chevy. While her husband was checking on the SUV, she apparently put the car in drive and hit the accelerator.

A CVS employee who helped the shopper grazed by the vehicle said the engine was still revving at a high RPM and the wheels were spinning after it crashed inside the store.
