"The woman did not hit the brakes when pulling into the parking space and went over the sidewalk into the window," Mack said.

No one was injured in the crash, police said.

The 76-year-old female driver from Mount Prospect was not cited in the crash.

Police did not have an estimate on damages to Yankee Candle, but said it looked like the entire front window area to the store would need to be replaced.

Around noon on Thursday, an SUV drove into two storefronts also on Evergreen Avenue in a shopping center across the street from Yankee Candle. Rush Performance personal training studio, 10 S. Evergreen Ave., and Liberty Cleaners, 12 S. Evergreen Ave., were both damaged in the crash.
