Four Injured, One Killed After Car Crashes Into Family Dollar

In a recent crash in Cleveland, Ohio, a driver slammed into a Family Dollar store. One of the passengers, a 27-year-old woman, died shortly after the paramedics rushed her to a local medical center. The other four passengers survived the crash, but sustained injuries. 

The driver, a 24-year-old male, was speeding, according to police, racing the vehicle faster than the posted 25 mph speed limit. Police say the driver lost control of the car, and crashed into the side of the store. Witnesses at a Wendy’s across the street reported seeing the car burst into flames after hitting the brick exterior wall. Customers inside the Wendy’s reportedly ran to the scene, using fire extinguishers to subdue the fire. 

Police will take the driver into custody after he is released by the MetroHealth Medical Center. He is facing charges of aggravated vehicular assault, and police also suspect that the crash was alcohol-related, which could lead to further penalties. 

Had the Family Dollar been open, and employees been injured in the crash, the driver could have faced personal injury lawsuits as well. These are some of the most common suits filed in the U.S., with 2012 seeing three million people injured at work. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than half of the 26,000 torts filed in 2012 were personal injury claims

The store had closed at 9 p.m. that night, and no employees or customers were injured in the crash. The store sustained some damage, as part of its brick wall exterior was destroyed.
