Woman crashes through front of supermarket in Dedham

DEDHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - A driver slammed through the front of a supermarket in Dedham on Friday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called to the Star Market on Providence Highway for a report of a car into a building.

Police said a woman in her 80s was involved in a crash in the parking lot before the incident. Police said she then mistakenly hit the gas pedal, propelling her car through the glass storefront. The car slammed into the back wall of the store’s floral department.

The woman and a man in the car who is believed to be her husband were taken to the hospital, officials said. They were not seriously injured and are expected to be OK.

No one in the store was injured. The supermarket was temporarily closed after the crash and has since reopened.
