A car smashed through the front window of a pharmacy in Florida. A security camera captured the moment.

The 80-year-old owner of the pharmacy was inside at that moment. She was standing by the counter when the car hit the pharmacy. She was almost hit. The counter was destroyed. The owner was taken to hospital. She was treated for cuts and bruises.

The car was driven by an 84-year-old woman. She caused damage worth $65,000.

Difficult words: smash (break), treat (help), bruise (purple or brown mark on your skin).
