Vehicle smashes through front of Canada's Dollar Store

Door crasher special

Shoppers at Canada's Dollar Superstore in the Dilworth Shopping Centre got more than they bargained for after a door crasher special Friday afternoon.

A small red vehicle smashed through the front of the store, sending sunglasses and other items flying. The incident happened just after 2 p.m. Friday.

Platoon Captain Kelly Stephens tells Castanet, "there were no injuries to the female occupant (of the vehicle), just cosmetic damage. No structural damage to the building, but quite enlightening for the people shopping and the lady in the vehicle."

It's not clear how the vehicle ended up going through the glass, but Captain Stephens says, "nobody means for these things to happen on purpose. We're just happy that nobody was standing in front of the vehicle."
 
Fortunately, the only things that were damaged can be replaced. Platoon Captain Stephens says, "it did leave a heck of a mess but best case scenario, nobody got hurt or killed."
