An elderly man drove his car into Northside Pharmacy Friday afternoon.

According to South Zanesville Firefighter JT Roberts the man hit the accelerator of his red Mercury Sable; propelling the car into a window of Northside Pharmacy on Maysville Avenue.

The driver was not injured in the accident, but the car side-swiped a parked mini-van next to it.

Retail Manager EJ Stoephel said employees were shaken up after the crash, but nobody was injured inside the store.

Despite the accident Stoephel said the pharmacy will remain open.

Police Chief Eric Findley said the accident is still under investigation.

This is the second time a vehicle has crashed into this building in the last two months.

You may remember back in December a car crashed into the Genesis First Care Complex side.
