Car Driven into Walgreens

It’s a good thing no one was hurt after a 77-year-old woman drove her car into a Walgreens in Cornish, Maine Thursday.

Vehicle was in Reverse Instead of Drive

The York County Sheriff’s Office said Donna Letellier from Limerick had been shopping in the store. When she finished, she got in her Subaru to drive away. “Instead of placing her vehicle into "reverse” she placed it into "drive" and accelerated through the side of the wall and into the store,” said the Sheriff’s Office.

The woman was alright and not injured. There were no injuries in the Walgreens or pharmacy, according to the Bangor Daily News.

Business Closed due to Major Structural Damage

Letellier's vehicle was towed away and the building had “major structural damage.” It  closed for business. The accident happened at 151 Maple Street in the small town of Cornish in York County, Maine.

Good Thing No One was Inured

It's a relief that there was nobody in the Walgreens that was hurt. Thankfully the driver made it out too. It must have been scary for everyone involved.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
