Truck crashes through Spotsylvania auto-parts store
Above, a Toyota Tacoma rests in the entrance of the Advance Auto Parts store at 2311 Salem Church Road, near the intersection of State Route 3, in Spotsylvania County. The driver of the vehicle, who declined to give his full name, said the truck unexpectedly accelerated as he attempted to shift the vehicle into park. Store employees said the motor was still revving after the vehicle stopped. No one was injured in the 9:45 a.m. accident. The truck was backed out of the entrance once the store was deemed structurally sound by Spotsylvania County building inspectors. / Photo by Peter Cihelka
