No one was injured when a car plowed into an office building at 833 Route 37 on Wednesday afternoon.

The 4:30 p.m. incident occurred when Jeanette Martin, 86, of Toms River, apparently was attempting to park her car when her foot slipped off of the brake pedal, said police spokesman Ralph Stocco. After initially hitting the gas pedal by mistake, the 2006 Ford Taurus went over the curb and through the class window of a vacant building, causing significant damage to the structure.
