Chatham Towing personnel prepare to pull a car from a vacant storefront Friday in Chatham.

Chatham-Kent police say no one was injured when a late-model Chrysler Sebring hopped a sidewalk and plowed into a vacant storefront at the 7-Eleven plaza at the corner of Grand Avenue and St. Clair Street Friday morning.

Police say the accident appears to be the result of a medical condition, for which the driver was transported to hospital.

Hairstylists next door at Borics Hair Care said they didn’t hear a thing when the accident occurred.

Chatham Towing personnel worked quickly in the cool drizzle to pull the car from the building and remove it from the scene.

  1. This isn't the first time a vehicle jumped a small curb like this and caused an accident. Luckily nobody was walking along this store front, like the time this happened at Bargain Shop on Queen St. I think it might be a good idea to maybe consider installing some sort or divider or railing to separate pedestrians from vehicles for safety reasons. I truly hope the person involved in this accident is going to be ok? Prayers

  2. Jeff Webber It's not just the elderly that have medical conditions. I could die behind the wheel tomorrow from an aneurysm, and I'm 21. So age discrimination is irrelevant. Anyone at any given time can be involved in an accident. That's the risk you take getting behind the wheel of a car.

    I heard the lady is just shook up, and she is fine. I hope that is true. And I'm glad no one was injured in the accident.
