An elderly woman had a lucky escape after a car smashed through the front window of her local pharmacy store.
CCTV footage from the chemist shows 80-year-old Adrienne Watkins by the counter as she bends down to pick up something she has dropped.
Suddenly, a car smashes through the front door of the store, destroying the shop counter and narrowly missing Ms Watkins who was picking up medication.
The out-of-control vehicle was driven by an 84-year-old woman named Margaret Underwood.
Ms Underwood had been involved in a small car accident in the parking lot prior to crashing into the store and causing $65,000 worth of damage.
After the incident, pharmacy staff rushed to help the injured Watkins, who was then taken to hospital where she was treated for cuts and bruises.
