Employees of a Woodland business got a shock Wednesday when a car crashed into the storefront.
Police were dispatched at 12:19 p.m. to Check Max Plus, 11 Purity Plaza, in response to a silent robbery alarm. They arrived to find that a 1992 Toyota sedan had smashed through the glass and concrete entryway, Sgt. Dan Letamendi said.
No one was injured, though Letamendi said the 19-year-old female driver, her 21-year-old male passenger and three employees of the business appeared “visibly shaken.”
“As of this time an exact cause for the collision has not been determined; however, it appears the driver may have inadvertently stepped on the gas pedal versus the brake, thus sending the car over the … curb, across the concrete walkway and into the building,” Letamendi said.
Woodland firefighters and a city building inspector also responded to ensure the building was safe to occupy, Letamendi said. The crash remains under investigation.
