A portion of O’Reilly’s Auto Parts was damaged Wednesday when a vehicle hit the building on Browns Bridge Road near the intersection of Pearl Nix Parkway.

Cpl. Joe Britte with Gainesville Police said a woman was parking at the shop when she apparently blacked out and the vehicle went into the building.

EMS responded, but the woman was not taken to the hospital. Britte said no charges are being filed.

Damage to the store included about a 3-foot section.
