Linda Lee Robinson, 75, of Columbus was making a right turn in the parking lot and hit the gas instead of the brake, according to Columbus Police reports.

Capt. Scott Hamby said she was charged with reckless driving.

Hamby also said estimates are that there was $1,000 worth of damage done to Robinson’s 2013 model Lincoln and $15,000 worth of damage to the building.

The car hit the left section of the front of Bonnie Brae, located on Shuford Drive in Columbus, and pushed a bookshelf over onto an employee and two dogs. The car broke a window and knocked bricks off the office’s foundation.

The employee was taken to the hospital and released Monday evening. The dogs were reportedly not harmed, nor the driver of the vehicle.
