COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - An employee of a Colorado Springs dental office was taken to the hospital on Thursday after a car came smashing through the front of the office.

The crash was reported at about 3:30 p.m. at Academy Kids Dental & Vision near Austin Bluffs Parkway and N. Academy Boulevard.

“The investigation showed an elderly driver mistook her gas pedal for the brake and accelerated into a dental office,” part of a blottery entry by the Colorado Springs Police Department reads. “The driver did not sustain any injuries. The vehicle struck a desk inside the business, injuring two employees. One was transported to a local hospital as a precaution. At this time the injuries appear to be minor.”

It isn’t clear if the driver will be cited for the crash. Details on how extensive the damage was to the building were not available.
