HUNTLEY – No one was injured on Wednesday morning after an elderly woman accidentally drove her vehicle into a Huntley commercial building, according to police.

Emergency crews were called to a building in the 12100 block of Regency Parkway at around 9 a.m. for a report of a vehicle striking a building.

The driver accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake pedal and drove through the wall of a multi-business unit in that area, authorities at the scene said.

No one was injured, but all employees were evacuated as a precautionary measure.
