Car hits vacant storefront on High School Road
A driver accidentally smashed a vehicle into a vacant storefront at the Island Village Shopping Center on High School Road Wednesday morning, said Bainbridge Island Assistant Fire Chief Luke Carpenter.
Emergency units were dispatched to the Safeway parking lot at 8:07 a.m. April 23 after an Acura sedan drove through a break in the steel sidewalk railings and into the glass storefront next door to Sole Mates Shoes & Outerwear.
Carpenter said he overheard the driver tell police the car wouldn't stop.
No one was injured, and the vehicle sustained minimal damage, but the glass windows and door to the vacant business space were shattered.
The framing was also significantly pushed in.
Medical units were called off when police established that no one was hurt in the incident.
Several employees at the nearby Rite Aid said that customers had told them about the crash throughout the morning, but the workers said that they had not actually heard anything when the car hit the building.
