A woman driving a car drove into the Martinez Family Produce Market in Walnut Creek on Wednesday afternoon. The driver of the car was not hurt in the car accident. A 10-year-old boy was injured. He was in the market at the time of the accident.

The driver,

68, of Walnut Creek, was driving a loaned 2007 Lexus RX 350 when she failed to negotiate a right-hand turn into the market, struck a curb, lost control and drove into the building and hit the rear wall, said CHP spokesman Scott Yox.

The boy was treated at Children’s Hospital in Oakland. He had some scrapes and bumps from the accident. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the accident and no citations have been issued.
