Lebanon - Customers and employees at a Tennessee jewelry store are lucky to be alive after a SUV crashed through the front of the store.
In what appeared to be a scene from a Hollywood movie, an SUV driven by an elderly man crashed through the front of The Jewelers in Lebanon, Tennessee on Thursday, sending glass flying and customers and employees scrambling.
Lebanon resident Elroy Cantrell, 66, had a "coughing spell” when he accidently hit the accelerator instead of the break according to Lebanon Police Officer Wayne Howard. Thankfully, neither Cantrell nor the customers or employees in the store were injured.
Store employee, Veronica Mallicoat, was standing only a few inches away from where the SUV crashed into the store. She told WKRN:
"I felt the air of the van go by me. That was kind of freaky."
The SUV came to a rest in the office where owner Shawn Smith was sitting just moments before. Smith credits the puppy he had adopted earlier that day for saving his life, telling WSMV:
"I adopted a puppy today and I had just finished the paperwork in my office and was headed home. It was literally just two minutes before. My puppy saved my life."
The store suffered an estimated $100,000 in damage, but Smith calls the damage "just stuff" that isn't important, adding:
"It could've been a bad day for everybody today, but it wasn't. The Lord was watching over us today."
