Car crashed into Middlesboro store

MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (WYMT) - A car crashed into a Bell County store on Monday.

It happened just before noon at the Red Balloon Party Supply store in Middlesboro.

Witnesses said a man pulled into a parking spot and hit the gas accidentally and slammed into the store. No one was injured.

"Went through the window, popped up on the mortar, and then he backed it up. We had just enough time to scream our heads off and call 911 and make sure everyone was okay," said Tracy Baker who owns the store and was inside when the crash happened.

Middlesboro Police say no charges were filed and the man was able to drive away in his car.

Red Balloon is closed while crews clean up the glass and repair the wall and windows.
