Car Plows through Dollar Store, Injures Four
When shopping at the local convenience store, nobody expects to come face to grill with a vehicle. We expect that drivers on the road and in the parking lot are safe enough to not run into the building. Unfortunately, there are times when the unexpected happens.
Shoppers were picking up their staples for the week at the Dollar Store in Martinez when a driver crashed his car through the window into the store. He plowed through the cash register, injuring four.
The cashier, according to authorities, was pinned underneath the vehicle as the others attempted to free her from her confinement. She, along with the three others, was taken to the Georgia Regional Medical Center. The driver suffered only minor injuries in the collision.
It’s not clear how the accident was caused, whether it was through mechanical failure, driving while intoxicated, or through inattention to the road and the parking lot. Those details will eventually be discovered, but at the time of reporting the Augusta Chronicle had no information.
The incident could have been much worse. In this case, there is a lot of property damage, both to the store and the car which crashed into the store. There are also plenty of medical expenses. These bills can be beyond the means of people to pay, even with insurance. That’s when you might need to file a suit to get compensation.
