WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A woman drove her car through the glass of Spectrum Laboratory Network on S. 17th Street Tuesday, just around noon.

According to police, a 58-year-old Carolyn Louise McPherson was behind the wheel when she blacked out because of a medical condition.

Officers say she jumped a concrete parking barrier and smashed right into the medical office.

Emergency workers took her to the hospital for a check-up, but no one was seriously injured.

Police said the Department of Motor Vehicles will likely review the woman's eligibility for her driver's license.  McPherson was cited for a safe movement violation.
