A car crashed through the front window of the Unichem Pharmacy on Katikati's Main Rd today.
Constable Bernie Inglis said the 84-year-old driver from Katikati had pulled into the disabled parking space, stopped and then mounted the footpath.
Ms Inglis said a pedestrian, from Kauri Point, was clipped by the car and complained of a sore wrist.
A St John Ambulance spokesman said the driver received cuts to the top of his scalp and was taken to the Katikati Medical Centre for treatment.
A passenger in the car was unhurt.
A police investigation is underway into the cause of the crash. Ms Inglis said due to the circumstances of the crash the driver will be required to obtain a medical clearance from his GP before being able to drive again.
It is not yet known if the man will be charged.
