MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WITN) – An Eastern Carolina discount store will be closed for a couple of weeks after a vehicle plowed into the building this morning.
Morehead City police say Shirley Henderson had minor injuries in the crash at the Dollar General on Bridges Street.
The 84-year-old woman was trying to park around 10:10 a.m. when she pushed the gas pedal instead of the brake, according to police.
The crash caused structural damage to both the outside and inside of the store. It appears a restroom at the store received most of the damage.
No one in the store was injured.
The crash is still being investigated by police.
