JUST IN: Driver crashes car into Bradlee Shopping Center store

A driver was hospitalized after she drove her car into Robcyns (3660 King Street) at the Bradlee Shopping Center.

The incident occurred around 3:20 p.m., according to the dispatch.

The driver was taken away on a stretcher and told ALXnow they accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake.

“What’s important is that everyone is okay,” said owner Meghan Herzing. “The lady, the driver, is a customer. I know her, and she was crying and profusely apologizing.”

The crash is not even the first of its kind this year: another driver sent their car through the front window of the nearby Tropical Smoothie Cafe in February.

“Over the last six years this has happened to the Hallmark store, the Shoe Repair store, Starbucks and Tropical Smoothie,” Herzig said. A driver also slammed into the front of the Capital One bank branch at the shopping center a few years ago.

The vehicular mayhem at the Bradlee Shopping Center is in addition to a recent shots fired incident, last year’s fatal stabbing, and safety concerns about loitering teenagers among employees at the center.
