READING, Pa. -

Sun glare is to blame for causing a woman to drive a vehicle into a car dealership's showroom late Wednesday morning, police said.

The accident happened around 11 a.m. at the Masano Ford dealership in the 1600 block of Lancaster Avenue in Cumru Twp., Berks Co., not far from the Reading city line.

The woman behind the wheel told police she was temporarily blinded by the sun and drove the vehicle over the curb and into the glass window of the showroom. She then managed to put the vehicle in reverse and back it into the parking lot.

No one was injured. The building suffered only minimal damage.
