A vehicle crashed through the storefront of a GNC shop at Milestone Center on Tuesday.
“It was like a nightmare,” said a GNC employee who said he was alone with a customer when the vehicle came barreling into the store at around 4 p.m.
No one was injured. The employee described the incident as an accident and said that the driver told him her acceleration pedal got stuck.
The vehicle was towed from the scene.
Next door, an entire wall of drum kits at the Music & Arts store rattled when the crash occurred. The music shop’s manager said he immediately went outside to see if there were injuries.
There was no damage to the music store, the manager said.
By 6 p.m., cleanup crews arrived to board up the store and sweep away the shards of glass on the sidewalk.
Onlookers peeked into the gaping storefront. One woman said she had hoped to do some shopping.
“What happened to my favorite store?” she asked.
