4 Hurt After Driver Crashes Car Into Shoe Store

Four people are recovering after police say an elderly man crashed his Black Cadillac into a shoe store in Tredyffrin Township on Tuesday.

The 75-year-old man was driving on East Swedesford Road around 6 p.m. when investigators say he lost control and crashed into the Famous Footwear store. 

"It just sounded like a bomb went off and I heard glass shatter," said Christine Foreman, the manager of the store. "I ran up front to make sure my employee was okay." 

Foreman says she saw one shopper pinned between the car and shelves of shoes for about 20 minutes until rescue crews arrived.

"From what it looked like, it seemed like he was injured pretty bad," Foreman said.

Officials say four people, including the driver, were injured in the crash.

Police have not yet revealed the driver’s condition. However, he was taken into custody for suspected DUI.

As for the remaining victims, one person was seriously hurt while the other two suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver has not yet been charged. Police continue to investigate.
