Car Crashes Into Forest Lakes 7-11; No Injuries

An SUV crashed into the Forest Lakes 7-11 Tuesday morning. It happened at 9:20 a.m. at 3455 Seminole Trail just south of the intersection with Airport Road. Howard Lagomarsino of Albemarle Fire & Rescue says the vehicle went entirely into the 7-11. Lagomarsino says the driver stated that he was pulling in to get something to drink when his brakes failed and his Chevy Tahoe kept accelerating. The SUV went between two posts and crashed two aisles deep into the store. Lagomarsino says nobody was standing there, and the car also avoided the check-out counter. The driver was not injured. Lagomarsino says it appears the supports of the structure were not damaged and that the facade can be repaired. (Photo from Howard Lagomarsino – Albemarle Fire & Rescue)
