PORT ANGELES — Pieces of plywood were in place across the front windows of the Mount Pleasant IGS and 76 station east of Port Angeles on Wednesday after a car drove through the windows the afternoon before.

Brian Johnson, manager of the small grocery store at 3010 U.S. Highway 101, said a car in the store’s parking lot drove into the store’s front windows, shattering them and damaging the front door at about 3:30 Tuesday afternoon.

“No injuries, thank goodness,” Johnson said Wednesday.

The car’s driver, whose name Johnson did not know Wednesday, appeared to have driven into the store after his foot slipped off the brake pedal.

Johnson said the man was helpful after the incident and shared his insurance information.

Johnson estimated the damage likely would cost between $10,000 and $15,000 to repair, adding that he is working with the man’s insurance company to cover the costs.
