POLICE said an ‘elderly gentleman’ crashed his car into the front door of the Chemist Discount Centre in Moe about 11am today.

Emergency services were called to the scene after the vehicle came to a “hard stop”.

The man, a regular at the Elizabeth Street pharmacy, was reported as shaken, but not hurt and taken home in an ambulance.

“It was a mistaken foot on the accelerator, not the brake and maybe a little bit embarrassing,” the duty officer told The Express.

The chemist has been closed for the rest of today, while the SES assess the damage and check the building’s stability.
