Car drives into discount tobacco store on Louisville Road

State Journal staff report, Published:

Frankfort Police Capt. Robert Warfel said a woman suffered only minor injuries when she accidentally drove her car into a business Monday evening.

The 51-year-old woman was trying to pull into a parking space at Smoker Friendly Discount Tobacco on Louisville Road just before 6:20 p.m., Warfel said, when the crash occurred.

“Her foot slipped off the brake and onto the accelerator, causing the vehicle to jump the concrete bumper and into the exterior wall of the building,” Warfel said.

No employees were hurt, Warfel said, and the woman was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

No charges are expected.

  • I understand csewell, but the story could have been constructed in a more simpler manner than it was without using all the "said's" in it and still been accurate and to the point in its reporting without any fear of being sued.

    That's or that is a shame for the reporter that spent those years learning to be a journalist only to have fears of being sued. Worng doesn't even cover how bad that is.

    I made a litte dig at your typo. All in fun though lol.

  • *that is OR that's (not both)

  • There is no place in hard news for "creative writing." Stuff like that causes lawsuits. You only say what the police reports says or what witnesses say. Anymore than that, and you are now writing an opinion piece. That's is the difference between journalism and the comment section. I'm not saying the newspaper is full of Pulitzer Prize-winning material, but it's "just the facts, sir."

  • So what's the point of learning if you don't make mistakes? My generation got papers back with RED for the mistakes and I didn't get a trophy for just showing up.

    There's way to many "he said, she said" to just fill in white space. Perhaps the reporter needs to re-learn creative writing and this might help jog their memory. I would welcome feed back not look down upon it.

    If things in this world come back to bite me... I got enough back there to bite lmao.

  • Pitchfork, you may not want to correct mistakes in public forums; it always comes back to bite you.

    Here's how it should have been written:

  • Franklin County Sheriff said this is likely drug related. An onsite thorough body cavity search was conducted that turned up some foreign residue that appears to be of drug nature. Specimen was collected and sent for further testing.

    I couldn't resist  :-)

    Only joking so don't get irate.

  • How funny and ironic that a car runs into an establishment in Frankfort the same day an old man drove into the Roosters Bar and Grill in Lexington.

  • They sell beef jerky also.

  • We now have a new drive-thru liquor store on the West side. All joking aside I hope no one was hurt.

  • Going after the REAL drug dealers...one at a time.  Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
