SYCAMORE – No injuries were reported Friday afternoon when a Toyota Camry crashed through the front of a vacant store at 1565 DeKalb Ave., authorities said.

Windows were damaged, but there was no structural damage to the building, Sycamore Police Sgt. Michael Anderson said. Police were called about 2 p.m.

"We think she forgot to put it in park and stepped on the gas instead of the brake," Anderson said.

The 24-year-old DeKalb woman was given a ride home; no tickets were issued.
