The driver of a small sedan drove into the front wall of the
Sherwin Williams paint store off Route 59 this afternoon. No one was reported
in the accident.
The car caused part of the wall to fall into the store, shifted shelving and knocked paint supplies onto the floor. The store manager said fortunately no customers or employees were in that section when the accident occurred.
Clarkstown police were on the scene investigating along with the building inspector and fire inspector.
The damaged interior portion of the store was blocked off with yellow caution tape. The manager said she was waiting for the building inspector to determine if the store could remain open. Shortly after 1 p.m. a flatbed tow truck arrived to remove the vehicle.
