GLASSBORO, N.J. (WPVI) -- A car slammed through the front of a store in Glassboro, New Jersey Tuesday, filling the building with smoke and prompting an evacuation.

It happened at the Family Dollar Store located at 638 North Delsea Drive.

Two employees and one customer were inside the store when the crash happened. Luckily, none were injured.

The driver of the vehicle has been identified as 25-year-old Destini Hill of Camden, New Jersey.

Hill has a NJ learner's permit to drive and was operating the vehicle with a licensed adult passenger.

Neither Hill nor her passenger was injured in the crash.

Hill told police that she was practicing negotiating a turn in the parking lot and she turned too sharp. Instead of braking, she says she hit the gas pedal and accelerated through the front wall of the store.

The Glassboro Fire Department responded to the scene to ventilate the building.

There are no charges are pending at this time.
