Lt. Steve Felmley said the 70-year-old man was pulling into the store parking lot at 1031 W. Bakerview Road around 9:30 when his Chrysler 300M accelerated and crashed through the front window of the building.Guy was from Texas, driving a rental car with too much hep. And on too little caffeine.
Five customers -- four women and a man -- were injured. One of the women was pinned against a wall, and all five have been taken to a local hospital.
None of the injuries was believed to be life-threatening.
The impact sent glass, furniture and debris flying through the store as the car careened through the store and into the back wall, causing it to partially collapse.
