An elderly driver has escaped injury after crashing into a unit in Mandurah.

Police say the woman, aged in her 80s, crashed into the bedroom wall of the unit at a retirement village on Third Avenue around 7.15am on Wednesday.

DFES and St John Ambulance attended but the woman did not need to be taken to hospital.

Luckily, no one inside the unit was injured.

Police at the scene said the driver had accidently put her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake while trying to let her dog out of the car following a trip to the beach.

The dog is yet to be found.

SES volunteers are now working to make the building safe.
