CROCKER, Mo. (Jan. 20, 2010) — A vehicle plowed through the front door of H&L Supermarket in Crocker Wednesday morning, but police say nobody was hurt and any structural damage to the building was minor.

“The two window panes and the footing that holds the window panes up were damaged, along with gumball and toy machines. We also had some possible minor structural damage, along with a register and counter,” said Police Chief Stephen North. “The windowpanes were completely smashed; half of the vehicle entered the building through the damaged window panes.”

No citations are expected and North said the name of the driver would not be released.

“It’s uncertain at this time what the cause was, but we have no reason to believe alcohol or other substances were involved,” North said. “We’re just happy no one was injured, and that’s it.”

North said H&L Supermarket is still open for business and no closures due to the crash are expected.

Damage estimates for the car were not immediately available. Gene’s Towing did come to the scene of the crash but were not needed; the car was backed out of the store after the crash and parked in the lot.

Crocker police were joined by Crocker firefighters and Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel in responding to the 9:56 a.m. crash, but further assistance was not needed and the other agency personnel were able to leave shortly after the initial report of injuries turned out to be incorrect.
