Saskatoon police say that at around 11:30 p.m. a 56-year-old woman may have meant to tap the brake as she pulled in front of the business in the 3300 Block of Fairlight Drive.
But instead- she pushed the gas pedal and smashed into the building. The vehicle and the business suffered extensive damage. No one was injured.

"I'm sure they got hundreds of people that could have lost a minimum of $500. That could be up to 50 grand up to half a million dollars," said Darryl Cherry, who believes he was the victim of a debit card scam targeting Affinity Credit Union customers in Saskatoon.
Cherry wasn't able to contact his branch manager because it was a Sunday, so he called police.
