Emergency services had to be called to a petrol station in Carlow Town this afternoon after a car was reversed into the shop building.
The Fire Service says the woman, who is understood to be elderly, was driving an automatic car at the Maxol station on the Old Dublin Road.
Some damage has been done to the building and the car also hit the service panel cutting the electricity to the shop.
However, that has now been restored and the shop has fully reopened.
No-one was injured in the incident.
