JUST IN: Car Runs into Fro Yo Shop on Duke Street

The driver of a car ran into the front of the SweetFrog frozen yogurt shop at 3219 Duke Street this afternoon.

The crash, at the Alexandria Commons shopping center, was reported around 2:45 p.m.

A driver in a Subaru hatchback hopped a parking curb and crashed into one of the store’s large front windows, shattering it. Police, firefighters and medics responded to the scene.

The driver was initially said to be injured and was evaluated by paramedics. No injuries were reported inside the store, which was evacuated after the crash.

An Alexandria building inspector was called to the scene to evaluate the building for structural damage.

This is at least the second time a driver ran into a storefront in Alexandria over the past week. Last week a minivan rammed the front of an international grocery store in the Van Dorn Station Shopping Center.
