CHICAGO (CBS) -- Hundreds of bottles of wine were left shattered Tuesday afternoon on the floor of a West Ridge convenience store after a car plowed into the building.

The driver smashed through the door, and continued about 25 feet inside.

Police said the 63-year-old driver was pulling into a parking lot at the New York Pantry convenience store at 3150 W. Touhy Ave. – formerly a White Hen Pantry – and accidentally pressed on the gas pedal instead of the brake.

No one was injured.

The driver received a traffic ticket.
