JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – A store in Jessamine County is closed until further notice after a car crashed into it on Saturday afternoon.

It happened at the Dollar General in Wilmore around 3:00 when a car ran into the side of the store.

Someone who was inside the store says they felt the crash before they saw it because of the impact.

Wilmore Police say the driver is an elderly woman who might have just lost control of her car.

“She was okay, she was talking to us. She was shaken up, of course. She’s not sure–she says that she hit the brake and the brake didn’t hold so we’re not sure what exactly happened,” said Wilmore Fire Chief Jimmy Powers.

Luckily no one was hurt.
