Crash sends car through convenience store front

SALINA, Kansas (AP) – A Salina man goes into a local convenience store for milk and turns around to find that his car has come crashing through the front of the building behind him.

Hassan Williford joked that the vehicle must have got tired of waiting for him Saturday afternoon at a Kwik Shop. Instead, it was another driver who struck Williford’s car and send it crashing into the building.

Moses Stewart of Salina was backing his Ford Expedition out of a parking space around 3:50 p.m. and struck Williford’s car. Stewart’s wife says her husband, who drove to the store to buy a lottery ticket, told her the accelerator stuck.

Police say the store would be temporarily closed until local and state inspectors approve its re-opening.
