Local Store Opens After Car Crashes Into It

Less than 24 hours after a car slammed through the store, a Gilmer Dollar General is open once again.

Workers cleaned up yesterday's mess and boarded up the hole left behind.

The storefront was smashed when a car went 6 feet inside.

Police say an elderly customer accidentally pushed the gas pedal when his foot slipped off the brake.

One female customer inside was injured. She's at ETMC in Tyler in fair condition.
