FRAMINGHAM – A teen driver crashed through the NAPA auto parts store in Framingham Sunday morning, April 25.
The crash happened around 11 a.m. at 113 Irving Street.
It is not known why the black sedan drove through the front of the store.
Framingham Fire Chief Michael Dutcher said the female, 16, was not injured in the crash.
“The vehicle struck the front of our building and continued to enter our sales area,” said owner Andrew Lemieux. “The vehicle came to rest when it hit a wall in the middle of our retail store front while taking out three rows of products on the way. Fortunately, no on was hurt.”
The crash is still under investigation said Framingham Police Sgt. Rachel Mickens.
Building Inspector was notified.
Building Commissioner Michael Tusino said Monday the store had no structural damage, so it could re-open once the damage was cleaned up and the broken window area was boarded up.
“We were able to re-open the wholesale portion of the business today at 10 a.m.,” said Lemieux. “the main store retail area will be closed for now until clean up and repairs can be made.”
Customers are asked to use the side entrance through the heavy duty parts store or call 508-665-4660 to pick up parts, said Lemieux to SOURCE today, April 26.
