A woman was injured after a minivan crashed into a building Monday afternoon in Lehigh Acres.
Officials said the accident happened at the Family Dollar on Homestead Road North around 1:30 p.m.
The Florida Highway Patrol says a 57-year-old woman was walking in front of the store when the 77-year-old driver attempted to park the van and hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

Two people in the van were not injured and the driver was cited for careless driving.
