MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A big mess was left behind after a blue Honda Accord slammed into the side of a local Circle K overnight.

It happened just before midnight at the store located at the corner of Winchester and Germantown in Hickory Hill.

The business was open when the car hit the building and customers were inside. WREG spoke with one customer, Micheal Johnson, who said he heard the boom and saw stuff flying from store shelves.

“There’s trash everywhere, you know,” Johnson said. “Coffee grounds, cream, sugar. It’s just messed up. Yeah, it is. Just messed up completely, yeah it is. They almost came through the whole store.”

No one was hurt.

“I don’t see how they survive, airbags out. I don’t know, I don’t know. We just pray for them. And maybe God will take care of them,” Johnson said.

The driver and two other people with him got out of the vehicle and ran after the crash. Memphis Police told WREG detectives are doing what they can to piece this all together.

The business said despite the damage and the gaping hole in the side of the building, they will remain open Friday.
