University Park Director of Marketing and Communications Steve Mace said the driver was the only person in the Mercedes sedan when it crashed into the store shortly before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, and two people in the store at the time were taken for treatment for minor injuries. The driver wasn’t injured. 

Mace added that the incident was deemed accidental and the driver of the sedan wasn’t cited.
