The Honeytree is back open for business after a car crashed through the storefront's window yesterday afternoon.

The store isn't back to it's normal look, sporting plywood where the pane should be. The store owner says by next week the new glass should be installed.

The owner says she was shocked when it happened and is still jumpy about what could have happened if someone was standing in that part of the store.

As scary as it was, the owner says she's just happy no one was hurt.

Tallahassee, Florida - September 13, 2011 -

A Tallahassee health food store got some unexpected visitors, right through the building's glass wall.

A car came crashing through the Honeytree in the Market Square shopping center around 3:30

Officers say Elaine Peters had pulled in front of the store when she accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes. Peters received two traffic citations. One for careless driving and one for driving with a suspended or revoked license.The store owner was shocked by the crash.

"Luckily no one was hurt. We're really happy about that. Honeytree has been a business for almost forty years and we've never had anything like this," says Honeytree's owner.

Peters was taken to the hospital with injuries. Her son, Teldrick Peters who officers originally thought was in the car with his mom was not injured.

Officers tell WCTV that Teldrick wasn't in the vehicle, but got in after the crash to help his mother out.
