Woman charged for smashing car into CBD store

UPDATE: A woman has been charged after allegedly driving her car into a Warwick shopfront.

The car mounted the kerb and slammed into Choice Discount Store just before 12pm yesterday.

The female driver was charged with failing to drive with proper control of a motor vehicle.

Police believe the crash occurred as a result of the driver believing her car was in reverse.

They said she accelerated with enough force to mount the kerb and smash into the Grafton St store.

One Choice Discount Store employee said the crash could be heard from the back of the store and the car's wheels continued to spin and smoke after the crash.
