Driver crashes into Elizabeth Twp. storefront

The owner of an Elizabeth Township hardware store was cleaning up his family business that was damaged Sunday when a driver crashed into the storefront.

“We got a call that a young lady apparently lost control of her car and came into our two front (glass) doors. She smashed up the cashier booth,” Tom Walter, owner of the 59-year-old R.C. Walter and Sons True Value Hardware, said about the 10 a.m. crash on Boston Hollow Road.

No one was injured. Had the store been open, he said, employees would have staffed the booth and customers likely would have been near the storefront.

“We were lucky no one was here, or they would have gotten hurt,” Walter said.

Elizabeth Township police and fire officials could not be reached.

Buckets of driveway sealer burst inside the store, and the glass doors were “gone. She did a good job on them,” Walter said.

“There is no major structural damage. It’s mostly superficial,” he said.

The store was scheduled to be closed on Monday for the Labor Day holiday.

“We hope to open on Tuesday,” Walter said.
