On Friday, shoppers and employees at Family Dollar, located at 2014 Norwich Street, scattered as a Mercedes crashed into the store, injuring three employees while smashing and scattering products and shelves.
The 75-year-old driver of the Mercedes Benz said that she was attempting to park and shop. She is convinced that she mashed down on the brakes but instead of the car stopping, it went straight into the store.
One of the employees said she suffered leg injuries and the other two did sustain cuts.
The police was called to the scene and the vehicle was removed from the building.
According to the report, the brakes on the car were functional.
