Driver Slams Into Storefront

A Water­loo store sus­tained between $25,000 and $50,000 worth of dam­age on Wednes­day night when a pickup truck drove into the front of the build­ing. 72-year-old Robert Sanders of Defi­ance was pulling into the park­ing lot of the “Party Store” on Union Street off of U.S. 6 at about 9:45pm when the vehi­cle con­tin­ued through the park­ing lot and slammed into the front of the busi­ness. Sanders told police he didn’t know what hap­pened but a police report indi­cated he hit the accel­er­a­tor instead of the brake. Alco­hol was not involved in the acci­dent. No injuries were reported.
