Vehicle Strikes La Porte Chain Store

(La Porte, IN) - It appears no injuries resulted from a motor vehicle striking the wall of a pharmacy this afternoon in La Porte.


At about 12:30 p.m., emergency responders were called to CVS at 1407 Lincolnway. 


A small hole was left in the brick exterior of the structure while the vehicle sustained what seemed like minor damage. A man sitting behind the wheel of the vehicle was talking to investigators after the collision.


The collision packed a punch despite the damage appearing minor, said Jeff Ludington, who was inside the store.


“I heard like an explosion, and the building shook,” Ludington said.


The La Porte man said he was surprised after going outside and noticing the damage wasn’t more significant.


“I’m just glad nobody hurt,” Ludington said.


Why the collision happened and other details were not immediately available from the police.
