Two people were recently injured during a car accident at a local Highland Park liquor store. According to the news, the accident occurred around 10 a.m. on August 8, 2013.
According to reports, the white BMW crashed into the Binny's Beverage Depot early that morning, lodging itself between displays of gin and vodka. Two people were sent to the hospital immediately following the accident. The police believe that the fire that resulted was due to the alcohol catching on fire during the crash.
Firefighters arrived on the scene following the arrival of the police. Two of the store's employees were taken to the hospital, according to the police, and another was treated at the scene of the accident and released.
The police have not given a cause for the accident, and it is still under investigation. Employees of the Binny's Beverage Depot were instructed by their employer not to speak about the incident or what they knew, so there have been no releases or statements about the condition of the two people who were sent to the hospital.
According to witnesses, the driver of the BMW was an elderly woman. A Binny's employee allegedly pulled her out of the vehicle following the crash. She was able to walk to the ambulance with the support of the medics, according to witnesses.
