UPDATE 3.45pm: An 87-year-old man has escaped injury after crashing his car into the Bendigo East Bowling Club building on Tuesday afternoon.
It is believed the man, a member of the club, might have mistaken gears and gone into drive, rather than reverse while in the car park.
His car went down a small slope and into the building, causing significant damage.
Sergeant Mick McCrann from Bendigo Highway Patrol said the building would have to be assessed.
Sergeant McCrann said a medical review into the man's ability to drive would also be conducted, a process that was usually undertaken in consultation with VicRoads and a person's GP.
Police, CFA, paramedics and the SES all attended the scene.
No one was evacuated from the building.
