  • According to authorities, the crash occurred after the store closed and involved two cars.

  • An EMT transported one person to a nearby hospital, and Long Beach Police assisted with traffic.

  • LBFD spokesperson Brian Fisk said the building department was requested to evaluate the structure's integrity.

What they're saying:

  • On the store's Instagram account wrote, "a dude drove through the front of the shop. It was gnarly, it currently is gnarly. Everyone is safe and no one was harmed including the lady he hit before making grand entrance. He even walked away...albeit in cuffs. Thanks everyone, you guys are making me cry."
