ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) -- Employees of an eye care clinic had a shock Tuesday morning when a car drove into the building.

The crash happened at Vision Mart Optical, 2476 S. Oneida St. According to Ashwaubenon Public Safety, an 86-year-old woman hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. No one was hurt in the crash.

An employee of the clinic said the crash happened not long after the business opened for the day.

"The car just came crashing through the windows, glass was flying everywhere," Terri Rodriguez, a Vision Mart employee, said. "We were completely shocked."

The driver was not a patient of the clinic, Rodriguez said.

Vision Mart was temporarily closed after the crash.
