Multiple injuries as car crashes into Target store
MSN reports the injuries of three people after a car crashed through the front of a Target store in Cherry Hill, NJ. The accident occurred at 10 a.m. Authorities attributed the cause of the crash to a medical episode suffered by the 76-year-old driver of a Hyundai Sonata. The driver and his two passengers incurred minor injuries. They all went to a local hospital to receive medical care.
The accident remains under investigation. Authorities do not anticipate bringing charges and describe the accident as an unfortunate event. The early time of the day and the lack of customers in the store likely avoided any injuries to shoppers or store employees.
