There was an unidentified object in the bagging area at Tesco last Friday when a car lost control and smashed through the front of the filling station kiosk.
The crash took place early in the morning, soon after 7am.
It is thought the female driver may have got confused over the pedals and placed her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake.
It led to her car crashing into the kiosk on the forecourt, knocking the front wall down.
While the building and car were damaged, thankfully no one was injured as a result of the accident.
A Tesco spokesperson said: “We are relieved that none of our customers or colleagues were hurt during this incident.
“The filling station was closed for a few hours on Friday while engineers checked the site but opened again that afternoon. We’re working to repair the wall as quickly as possible, and apologise for any inconvenience this has caused customers.”
