A car slammed into the front of Houser Shoes on Friday afternoon just before 4 p.m. Friday afternoon, taking out a sizable portion of the storefront.
According to officials with the Greenwood Police Department, a white Toyota Avalon was pulling into the parking lot of the store. The driver told police that the accelerator got stuck and she was unable to stop the vehicle before it slammed into the front of the store.
“It really took me by surprise,” said Brenda Easler, store manager at Houser Shoes. “I hope that everyone is alright.”
Officials say that both the driver and passenger of the vehicle were not complaining of any injuries, but were transported to Self Regional Healthcare by Greenwood County EMS as a precaution. No other injuries were reported.
