INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (KCTV) - The authorities are investigating after a vehicle struck a CVS in Independence on Friday evening.

There is notable damage that has been done to the pharmacy on the northeast corner of E. 39th Street S. and S. Noland Road. There is large indent or hole where it was hit.

In fact, there is now a red sign saying “dangerous building” that has been duct-taped to the side of the structure.

This incident happened just after 2:35 p.m. The authorities are still trying to figure out what caused the crash. The thinking right now is that the driver might have confused the gas and brake pedals.

A tow truck had to pull the vehicle out and remove it from the scene.

Luckily, no injuries were reported.

Right now, there’s no word on how long it will take to make repairs or if the pharmacy is even allowed to be open until they are completed.
