A van struck CVS Pharmacy Monday morning.

Barbara Jane Smith, 80, of Florida, was driving a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan at CVS Pharmacy, 733 W. Market St., according to Tiffin Police Department.

Sgt. Bryan Bryant said Smith was trying to park and hit the gas instead of the brake. The vehicle struck the building.

Smith was checked by Tiffin Fire Rescue Division. She declined treatment and was not transported, Bryant said.

He said the building had a minor scuff, and the bumper and grill broke off Smith’s van.

The accident was reported to Tiffin Police Department at 10:18 a.m.
