Richmond RCMP has revealed that the Honda SUV that crashed through the front window of a 7-Eleven in the city was caused by “driver error.”

Pictures posted on Chinese social media platform WeChat showed the car, which was driven by a 76-year-old woman, embedded inside the store at Blundell and No. 3 roads.

However, police say that the accident, which happened around noon on Saturday, July 13, didn’t result in any injuries.

Richmond RCMP’s Cpl. Dennis Hwang added that “neither alcohol, drugs, nor speed are considered factors in this collision.”

One of the images posted on social media shows the window broken into several pieces, while others show grocery shelves fallen to the ground, with products spread out all over the place. 

Yet another photo shows two ambulances at the scene after the accident took place.
