MANCHESTER — An 81-year-old was taken into the hospital Wednesday after she drove into a local dentist’s office, police said.

The accident happened about 11:40 a.m. at Amazon Dental, 21 Buckland St., Lt. Ryan Shea said. The woman, the only person in the car, complained of head pain and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

No one in the building was injured, he said.

Police believe the woman accidentally put her foot on the Subaru Forester’s gas pedal instead of the brake and drove through the office entrance, Shea said.

Most of the damage was in that part of the building, he said. The building inspector said employees and patients are allowed to be in the building, but they will have to use another door to gain access.

A woman who answered the phone in the office about an hour after the accident said said she was with a patient and was unable to talk about the incident.

Police are still investigating, Shea said.
