Lexus SUV turns Plaid Pantry into a drive-in

SUV turns Plaid Pantry into a drive-in

The driver of a Lexus SUV accidentally plowed all the way into a Plaid Pantry on Northeast 82nd Avenue Saturday morning, shattering much of the front doors and front wall.

Neither the driver or anyone in the store appeared seriously injured, witnesses said.

The store is located on the east side of 82nd at Northeast Tillamook Street.

The dramatic scene surprised customers and clerk alike, and a store manager rushed to the scene to check the damage. Police cordoned off the entire parking lot and store after the crash.

A woman who appeared to be the driver eventually was taken away in an ambulance, but she was sitting up and paramedics took their time before transporting her.
