A car crashed through the White House Black Market, a women’s clothing store, at the Shoppes at Webb Gin on Monday afternoon, according to Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services.

The department was called to the crash shortly after 2:07 p.m. Two people suffered minor injures, but did not need to go to the hospital, said Capt. Tommy Rutledge, agency spokesman.

No shoppers or employees at the Snellville-area store were injured, said Rebecca Romesburg, the assistant manager. The shop will be closed for the rest of the week for repairs; the front window and front of the store were damaged in the crash.

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the crash and whether the driver will face charges.
