Car crashes into Elmira liquor store

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - A brand new liquor store in Elmira is damaged after an elderly man crashed his car into the building Saturday morning.

His white Chrysler slammed into the storefront of Grapes and Grains in the Wegman's Plaza around 11:45 a.m.

Elmira Police say it appears the driver was pulling into a parking spot and drove the car over a curb and into the building.

No injuries were reported - just damage to the car and the store.

"We just had some customers leave the store and we heard a big boom," said co-owner of Grapes and Grains John Manning.  "The car hit another car and came over the curb then into our storefront." 

Despite the damage, Grapes and Grains is still open for business.

Police say no tickets or charges have been filed at this time.
