Car Crashes Through Store Window

Last Updated: 20 April, 2012

A weekday evening in April saw a car in Skokie crashed through the front windows of a bedding store, causing damage to the store and merchandise.

John Belcher, a salesman at the Bedding Experts store located on the 4800 block of West Dempster Avenue, was sitting at his desk on Wednesday, April 18th when a car suddenly vaulted into the middle of the store around 9 p.m. The car drove 20 -25 feet into the store, smashing into beds. The driver, a 57-year-old woman, apparently lost control of her car as she was making a left turn.

Belcher estimated that the store lost merchandise valued between $20K and $30K. He was the only person in the store at the time and received no injuries from the incident. The driver was not injured and declined medical attention. At this time no tickets have been issued for the accident.
