Official: 4 hospitalized after car crashes into store

MIDLOTHIAN, Va. (AP) — Four people have been hospitalized for injuries they sustained when a car crashed into a store in Virginia.

The incident happened Monday afternoon when the vehicle ran into Visionworks, an eye care store, in Midlothian, WRIC-TV reported.

David Swaby was in the store during the crash. He told the news outlet that a child was “under the wheel” of the vehicle after it went into the store.

“There was a mother screaming for her daughter,” Swaby said. “I got the daughter out, assisted with getting the woman who was pinned out, and convinced the driver to crawl across the door, and open the passenger door and I pulled her out.”

Chesterfield Fire & EMS spokesperson Eddi Berry said there were no significant injuries.

“When you go to work, it’s a Monday, prepping for my day, I would never expect that something like this to happen and I think it was a miracle that nobody was seriously injured,” said Renee Ferrucci, the general manager of the store.

It is not clear what caused the accident.
