Elderly man crashes car into Mt. Vernon pharmacy

MOUNT VERNON — No injuries were reported yesterday afternoon, when an elderly man crashed his car into the Byrd-Watson Pharmacy in Mt. Vernon.

The man reportedly hit his gas pedal instead of his brake and crashed into the store around 2:15 p.m.

The pharmacy closed the lobby of the store but stayed open for business as crews cleaned up the glass and other debris.

The pharmacy expects to have the damage repaired in a few days.
