Vehicle Crashes Into Willowbrook Store

WILLOWBROOK, Calif. -- A vehicle crashed into a retail store in Willowbrook on Monday, slightly injuring one person.

The wreck occurred near East 118th Street and Wilmington Avenue just after 12:30 p.m., according to California Highway Patrol Officer Anthony Martin.

A security guard who reported the accident to the CHP said the vehicle crashed into a shoe store. But Chris Garcia, who works at nearby New Family Shoes Inc., said the accident actually occurred next door to him at T Shirts City, at 11716 Wilmington Ave.

One man was cut near the ear by flying glass, Garcia said.

No one was hospitalized, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher.

Martin, who could not immediately confirm the name of the store that was involved, said sheriff's deputies and CHP officers were investigating the cause of the accident.
