Fire Department paramedics were called to the Apple retail store at 801 W. North Ave. in Chicago at about 6:30 p.m. yesterday evening after an elderly person drove a black sedan into the glass storefront, injuring one.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Joseph Roccasalva said the Chicago police were already on the scene investigating the crash when they arrived. Chicago News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss said the driver was described as “elderly.”

This person was apparently driving too fast and simply lost control of the Lincoln Town Car which went through the glass entrance and made it about five feet (1.5 meters) inside the store.

The Chicago Tribune reports, “There were shards of glass strewn on the ground from the impact, according to witnesses.”

You don't say? It must take a keen sense to make this observation after a car smashes through a wall of glass.

Anyway, it seems the only injured person was taken to the hospital in “good condition.” Going by the report, the damages to the store will be easily repaired.

Nothing to see here folks, move along.
