The driver reportedly had a medical emergency and struck a woman, according to Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Collin Flynn. Witnesses said he also struck the building, leaving car parts behind.
“The lady I was standing with — I don’t know if she panicked or just didn’t run,” Racquel Moore told Channel 2, describing the moment the woman was hit.
The victim has non-life-threatening injuries, Flynn said.
The driver initially left the scene, police confirmed. A witness followed him into a nearby subdivision, Channel 2 reported.
“We didn’t know if he was coming back,” Hampton said. “He could have killed all of us in this line.”
Flynn said police released the driver at the scene. The nature of the medical emergency has not been provided.
