An elderly woman shocked her Bayside neighbors when she accidentally plowed her car through her garage on Friday, police said.
The woman — whose age and name were not immediately released by police — was pulling into her garage on 48th Street about 1:15 p.m. when she mistook the accelerator for the brake and ripped through the structure, cops said.
The woman was taken to the hospital with minor injuries while rescue services extracted the car.
