SUV crashes through dry cleaners front window, misses two people

A Newport Cleaners customer hit his SUV’s gas instead of the brake and plowed through the front window of the dry cleaners.

Justin Tufts, an employee at Newport Cleaners on the corner of Squires and Richmond roads, said no customers were present at the time of the accident. The crash happened about 9:30 a.m. Friday, he said.

No one was hurt or injured, but the store has a lot of structural damage.

“He went half way into the store,” Tufts said. “He went in between two people.”

“He had a hurt foot, he was using the other foot to drive,” Tufts said.

Lexington police said the driver’s foot slipped, causing him to loose control of the vehicle.

Police arrived minutes after the accident. Chargers have not been filed.
