A Cadillac driven by an 85-year-old woman crashed through the front of a vacant storefront in the 26900 block of Newport Road Friday night. The structure sustained significant damage and the walls of an adjacent business were damaged, but no one was injured, witnesses said.

The storefront was boarded up Saturday, when owners of nearby businesses said it appeared the woman hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. According to Riverside Fire, two engine crews responded. There were no injuries.

The incident occurred about 7 p.m. in the shopping center on the northwest corner of Newport Road and Bradley Road. The vacant business is located between a payday loan store and Venus Burger. The payday store sustained minor damage.
