Police believe a woman, who crashed her car into the foyer of a building in central Wellington on Thursday morning, accidentally accelerated instead of braking.

A late model Mercedes crashed through plate glass doors at the main entrance to Lumley House on Hunter Street at around 8.30am.

Witness Jake Ashby said it was a shock sight to see first thing at the start of the working day.

Police say the woman was trying to park her car when the accident occured. She was not injured.
