LAUDERHILL, Fla. – Lauderhill fire officials are investigating after an elderly woman crashed into the conference room of an office building Tuesday morning.

A Lauderhill Fire Rescue spokesman said the woman mistook the gas for the brake when she crashed into the building at 4450 N. University Drive.

Luckily, a meeting had just been canceled so no one was inside the conference room when the car came crashing in.

A building inspector was at the scene to determine whether it was safe to remain inside the building.

No injuries were reported.
