No one was injured after a vehicle drove through James Super Save Foods just after 7 p.m. this evening. The vehicle broke through the brick and glass entrance to enter the store approximately 10 feet and destroyed one of the check-out lanes. The cashier who had been stationed there escaped injury after a co-worker saw the vehicle coming towards the building and screamed for her to “Run!”
The 2001 Ford Windstar was driven by Ralph Wahl, age 93, who refused medical treatment. No other details on the
cause are available at this time.
Store owners, James & Jennifer Womble stated crews have already been called in and the store expects to re-open by noon Tuesday. Early estimates indicate the damage to be near $50,000. The Wombles added that all of the produce on display would be replenished with new.
The Wombles said they are very grateful that no one was injured.
