Car Crashes Into Convenience Store

KSAL StaffMay 11, 2013
Police say that an SUV traveling at a high rate of speed in reverse knocked the car 12 to 15 feet forward. It crashed through a wall and into the store.

No one is seriously hurt when a car crashes into a Salina convenience store Saturday afternoon.

Salina Master Police Officer Rande Repp tells KSAL News that Hassan Williford of Salina parked his 1995 Ford Probe in front of the Kwik Shop on Fairdale Road and went inside the store. While he was in the store, his car was hit and also ended up inside the building.

According to Repp, 75-year-old Moses Stewart of Salina was backing up in a 2006 Ford Expedition in the parking lot when his accelerator stuck. The SUV traveled at a high rate of speed in reverse, and struck the car.

The car was knocked 12 to 15 feet forward. It crashed through a wall and into the store.

Repp says that Stewart was not hurt, but two other people were evaluated at the scene. Kim Werth of Salina and Holly Crowder of Bennington were inside the store when the car came crashing through. Both were evaluated by EMS. Neither was transported to the hospital.

Repp says that a City of Salina Building Inspector and an inspector from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment both responded to the scene.

As of 8:30 Saturday night the store was still closed. Employees were turning away customers, but were telling them that they anticipated reopening by the end of the evening.

The crash left both vehicles inoperable. Both were towed from the scene.

The accident happened at 3:45 Saturday afternoon. Repp adds that he does not anticipate anyone being cited in the incident.
