Driver nearly crashes into pharmacy at Shelbourne Plaza

Witnesses saw older couple escorted away following crash

Witnesses saw an older couple escorted from the scene for precautionary reasons after one of them drove their sedan over a concrete barrier in the Shelbourne Plaza parking lot and into a pillar in front of Hart Pharmacy IDA.

The pillar is believed to be non-load bearing and supports an overhead cover for the mall’s walkway.

The vehicle was parked when the driver shot across the parking lot road over a concrete barrier into the pillar around 12:45 p.m.
