Posted: Updated:
COHASSET, Mass. (WHDH) - A driver backed her car into a hardware store in Cohasset Sunday night and Surveillance videos caught it all on tape.
According to police the Scituate woman went through the plate glass window at the front of the building before hitting several Christmas tree displays and coming to a stop.
“It was, a lot of noise, very loud glass shattering. I heard the noise and all of a sudden I saw everything coming towards me and I just basically wanted to get out of the way,” Scott Doland, and employee who was working at the time, said.
According to store manager Shane Thomas customers had just been shopping at the display a minute Before the crash.
“They were scared, they had a close call. They were very happy to escape,” Thomas said.
The woman told police she was backing up to load heavy bags of ice melt into her car, but instead of hitting the brakes she accidentally stepped on the gas pedal.
No charges have been filed against the driver and no one was hurt although some merchandise has been damaged and the front window is now covered with plywood.
