AUSTIN - One woman has "minimal injuries" after a vehicle drove through a Dollar Tree store in North Austin Dec. 30.

According to Austin-Travis County EMS, the vehicle drove into the store located at 5310 Burnet Road at around 1:30 p.m.

The Austin Fire Department told KVUE that an elderly woman drove into the store while she was trying to park. AFD said the driver had minor injuries and refused to be taken to a hospital. Another woman in the store was hit by the door and taken to Dell Seton Medical Center with minimal injuries, authorities said.
