Car Crashes into Auto Parts Store

(Michigan City, IN) - A car crashed into a store in Michigan City this morning. It happened about 10 AM at the Advanced Auto Parts store on U.S. 20 just west of U.S. 421. 


Adrienne Laskoske is a delivery person helping a customer at the store's front counter at the time. Laskoske said she saw the vehicle crash through the glass front doors and come to rest completely inside the building.

“There’s a lot of broken glass,” she said.

She said the car stopped about 15 feet from where she and several customers were standing.


Laskoske said the elderly driver shut off the engine, stepped out of the car, and sat down on a chair inside the store until police and other emergency responders arrived. Nobody was injured.


The driver didn’t seem to know the cause of the accident, according to witnesses. 


“He wasn’t sure what happened,” Laskoske said.

A tow truck removed the car from the store about one hour later. However, the store closed until the damage could be repaired and the huge mess inside the store was cleaned up.
