CANTON, Texas (KLTV) - Several businesses in downtown Canton had to clean up after a crash Sunday night.

The crash happened on Highway 64 in town. A business owner we spoke with said the driver of a vehicle suffered a medical emergency and went off the road. The car ended up coming up the sidewalk, damaging handrails, the sidewalk, and also breaking windows of several businesses.

Earl West, owner of A Wicked Read, said his business had a window broken by the crash. He said the businesses and the city got to work and cleaned everything up quickly.

“I expected it to be a lot worse, fortunately the gentleman was okay, he didn’t get hurt, just a little bit of property damage,” West said.

West said his business has dual-paned glass and only the outer glass was broken.
