Durban - An employee of Tekweni Meats was rushed to hospital after a car crashed through the store in Joe Slovo (Field) Street on Wednesday.
Deon de Kock the store manager said the driver of the BMW claimed he had been rear-ended by a mini-bus taxi on the roadside and lost control.
“He claims he had pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. He claimed he spun around on impact. The momentum steered the car over the pavement and into the shop. A staff member who was seated behind the cash counter was injured,” Kock said.
The store was open for business. The storefront glass, counters and accessories in the store were extensively damaged.
The dramatic crash was caught on the stores CCTV cameras.
