The manager of the McDonough Market convenience store, Tony Patel, told Channel 2 Action News he was glad the business was nearly empty at the time. Only a clerk was inside. While the clerk was not injured, he was shaken up, Patel said.
About 8:30 p.m., a car pulled up to a parking space in front of the store, which is located at the corner of Macon Street and Racetrack Road, and it did not stop. The car took out a wooden pole, crashed through the storefront and continued to the back of the store, hitting the beer coolers, the news station reported.
