NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A day after a driver crashed through the front doors of the KJ's Convenience store on South Street on Tuesday, the business received on OK to remain open while repairs are being made.
Kim Drury, the owner of the store, said officials from the City of Nacogdoches' Inspections Department, gave them the green light to stay open Wednesday. New doors were visible at the store's front entrance Wednesday morning.
According to Nacogdoches Police Sgt. Keith Finchum, Betty Kelly, 65, of Shreveport, La., was driving a GMC Sierra and pulled up to park at KJ's Convenience Store, located at 4712 South Street, at 8:20 a.m., but accidentally hit the gas pedal and crashed into the front door.
The store remained open during the clean up. The front door was blocked and customers were asked to use the back door to enter and leave the building.
Although Kelly was shaken up after the accident, she wasn't injured. In addition, no one in the store was injured.
Sgt. Greg Sowell with the Nacogdoches Police Department said that Kelly will not be charged or receive any citations because nobody was hurt, and the incident happened on private property.
