TRUSSVILLE – A car drove through a wall at the Walmart off Chalkville Mountain Road on Monday, April 22, according to Trussville Fire Chief Tim Shotts.
The Walmart is located at 5919 Trussville Crossings Parkway.
The Trussville Fire Department said there were only minor injuries; one person in the vehicle was taken to the hospital.
District Marketing Manager for Walmart, John Tow, said that no one other than the driver and the passenger was hurt. Tow also said that two people were walking in the area when the accident happened, including a little girl, but that they were not hit, although they were badly shaken.
According to Tow, the damage occurred in the area of the vending machines, but he said that the damaged wall was not a weight bearing wall. Walmart will remain open and repairs will commence immediately.
“I’m just glad it wasn’t worse,” said Tow.
Pastor George Maronge and his wife traveled to Walmart to check on the elderly couple that had been in the vehicle. The couple attends Grace Community Church on Deerfoot, which Maronge pastors. Upon arrival, Morange learned that the couple would be sent to St. Vincent’s Hospital, and Morange went there to check on the couple.
