Officials say that a driver ended up on the second floor of a Massachusetts mall.

According to Braintree Police, on Thursday, at 11:45 a.m., Braintree Police Officers responded to the South Shore Plaza on a report of a vehicle that had driven inside of the mall. When officers arrived at 250 Granite Street, they located a late model Lincoln MKX stopped on the second floor of the mall. The driver, still seated inside of the vehicle, had stopped the vehicle on her own and bystanders were speaking with her.

Officers and a mental health clinician evaluated the elderly driver on scene before she was transported to an area hospital for further evaluation. The Braintree Police are requesting an Immediate Threat License Suspension from the Registry of Motor Vehicles. No charges have been filed at this time.

The vehicle had entered the mall from the south garage via a pedestrian bridge. Due to a recent accident, one of the safety bollards was missing in front of the entrance. The mall sensor doors opened, allowing the vehicle to travel inside.

The driver slowly entered the mall and took a left, where she travelled about 60 yards down the main corridor on the second level. There was minor damage to the vehicle as a planter and other items were knocked over. There were no injuries reported.

The bollard was already scheduled to be replaced by mall management and will be done soon.
