Most of the accidents on the road happen because drivers are in a hurry, distracted or simply intentionally do not follow the rules and regulations. Every year, about 421,000 people are injured in crashes that have involved a driver who was distracted in some way.
On Tuesday, March 26th a car crashed through the front window of a Goodwill Store.
An SUV clipped a parked car and veered off into the storefront of a Goodwill store on Pembina Highway. The vehicle burst in flames after the impact and the building receives heavy damages, the store is nearly completely destroyed.
Doug Chase, operations manager at Canadian Goodwill took a walk through the building with the insurance company to survey the damage. Chase said the store is a total loss, but they hope to be able to rebuild and reopen soon.
At the time of the crash, three staff members and three customers were inside but managed to escape before emergency crews arrived, thankfully, nobody required any medical assistance and everyone walked away with just a shock and scare after what happened.
Unfortunately, many accidents still happen in Winnipeg every, despite the weather change and the roads are not slippery and are not covered in snow, as it was during winter.
Fellow Winnipeggers please don’t text and drive, follow the speed limits, the limits there for a good reason, keep our roads safe and easy to drive. Every driver should pay attention to the traffic lights and the situation on the road.
Let’s all be responsible drivers and care for each other, so at the end of the day, we can all come back home to our loved ones.
