A driver allowed her car to plow through the ice machine, window and exterior wall of Mr. J’s Food Mart at 4220 West Lee Street yesterday. There were no injuries but power to the building was disrupted, the ice machine destroyed, a wall opened and a window broken. Harpreet Kaur said “the business will be closed until repairs are made”.
There are varying stories as to why the car did not stop. Police investigation will evaluate mechanical condition of the car, possible brake malfunction or driver error.
Representatives from Greenville Utility and Electrical Systems and the City of Greenville will make a determination as to building safety.
