SUV crashes into Piggly Wiggly
HOOVER, Ala. —
A driver's mistake makes a big mess at a grocery store. The driver smashed into the Piggly Wiggly in Shades Mountain.
A woman driving a black SUV accidentally ran into the store.The store manager tells ABC 3340 Amber Grigley that he was inside when the crash happened. He said the driver accidentally pressed the gas pedal instead of her brakes. A worker from "Consider It Joy Bakery," that sits right in front of the Piggly Wiggly said she was very surprised, but luckily the driver was okay.
"We could already tell that she was okay because the EMT was there and everybody was being so calm. So we knew if anybody had been hurt that it would be a lot more hectic and scary. We actually did see a stretcher for a minute, but they left and we could tell that nobody was injured," said Elizabeth Woods.
The store owner tells Grigley that the SUV got about two feet into the store, knocking over a few drink machines and plants. All which he considers an easy fix.
