A scary scene at a produce store in Champlain Mall this evening.
A car accelerated into Kin’s Farm Market, knocking down fruit stands and luckily missing several customers
But employee Michael Ko says one employee was hit.
“She was outside looking at the fruits, checking for quality. She was standing right beside the table and she just got hit.”
Ko says the woman in her mid-40’s was taken to hospital with no major injuries.
“I guess the driver pressed the gas instead of the brakes, and went onto the sidewalk and drove through the sidewalk and knocked all the fruits over.”
The employee was given Tylenol and treated for scrapes on her knee.
Ko saw it all happen.
“I was inside the store and I actually saw the car go through the sidewalk. There were around four employees in the store, not sure how many customers. I just heard the supervisor yelling the employee’s names. Everyone was in shock just like me.”
Ko says the front door was shattered but the store will re-open tomorrow.
No word if the driver of the vehicle will face charges.
