Windsor police say a 52-year-old woman was hit as a car crashed into a Giant Tiger store in east Windsor.
It happened around 11:53 a.m. Monday morning in the 4500 block of Tecumseh Road East.
A 65-year-old woman was waiting for a parking spot in front of the store. Police say as she was pulling into the spot, she hit the accelerator instead of the brakes.

The pedestrian received a non-life-threatening injury to her leg and was taken to hospital. The driver of the car was not hurt.
The damage to the car was estimated at about $1,000. The front of the building sustained about $ 3,000 damage.
Police say no charges are expected to be laid.
