MORRISBURG — Another cross-over-type vehicle has jumped a curb at the Morrisburg Plaza and damaged a storefront.

No pedestrians or shoppers were injured in the latest incident in which a female motorist somehow wound up briefly travelling eastbound on the covered sidewalk at the Plaza.

The passenger side of the Nissan crunched up against the Timmy’s Place storefront before the vehicle came to a stop before the Scotiabank door, shortly after 2 p.m. Only the thrift store sustained damaged. Police and the local fire department both responded.

The driver did receive “minor injuries,” according to Constable Joel Doiron of the SD&G OPP. He attributed the incident to “driver error.”

Timmy’s Place associates spent much of the afternoon securing and boarding up a large- and a small-pane window smashed out by the car.

A similar incident occurred in November at the nearby East End Promenade, again with no injuries.
