A 68-year-old Lawrence man accidentally crashed his vehicle into the front of Miller Mart, 2301 Wakarusa Drive, Friday morning, causing the store to close for about two hours for repairs.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said at 9:50 a.m. the man exited his 2008 Nissan Titan, but the vehicle began to move forward. He did not know why the vehicle went into motion. It was on private property, so police did not issue any citations, McKinley said. No one was injured.
Vishwa Sherchan, a manager at the store, said it closed for two hours for repairs of the windows and so that electricians could check the building. It re-opened Friday afternoon. Sherchan said the crash was an accident.
