The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says Anna Nowakowski, 82 of Clinton, was attempting to park and lost control of the vehicle. She ended up crashing right into the front of the building, which caused major damage. 

Crews were cleaning up the entryway hours after the crash, where a pillar was torn down, debris, bricks and glass were visible on the ground in front of the store.

A photo of a vehicle that ran into the building was posted on Facebook by Randy Yando.

Nowakowski was uninjured, but deputies say was ticketed for driving without a license. 

She is due back in Town of Westmoreland Court at a later date.
