SUV Crashes Through Window at Thornton's in Wilder


An SUV plowed through a Wilder gas station, injuring two men inside.

The Thornton's, located at 1005 Town Drive, is near the Great Escape Cinema off of Route 9.


Police say the accelerator got stuck on the driver's Toyota Highlander at about 7:35 a.m. The SUV went through the front of the store on Town Drive all the way back to the beer cooler.

According to police the driver was a woman in her 50’s.


Two men were stocking the beer cooler at the time. One was taken to UC Medical Center but he is expected to survive. The other man was taken to the hospital with some lacerations.

The driver is expected to be okay. She will not be cited.


The store is expected to remain closed Friday.
