LANCASTER – No one was injured when an elderly driver lost control of her vehicle and smashed through an empty storefront in Lancaster Thursday morning, authorities said.
The crash happened around 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, at a strip mall on the southwest corner of 20th Street West and Avenue J.
A woman in her 70s was driving through the parking lot when she apparently had a seizure and lost control of her vehicle, according to deputies at the scene. The vehicle mowed down a small tree, sideswiped a truck and then crashed through the storefront next to the AT&T building, deputies at the scene said.
The driver appeared uninjured from the crash, but was transported to a local hospital as a precautionary measure due to the suspected seizure.
The elderly driver was unlicensed and had no insurance, according to deputies at the scene.
