I just got off the phone with the manager of the store. He said they will open at 8 a.m. The side entrance will be in use. They worked through the night cleaning up and boarding over the front of the store. The photos are taken (with permission) from their Facebook page. Here.
At least two people were injured tonight after a woman apparently suffered a medical event and drove her SUV into the Tacoma Food Co-Op, 3002 6th Ave.
The incident occurred at 7:45 p.m.
Henri Parren, the co-op’s general manager, said a woman appeared to pass out behind the wheel and then drove straight through the front door.
He was struck by the SUV while standing behind the cash register but said he is OK. Two customers, however, were injured and taken away in an ambulance.
“I initially didn’t think she was going to come all the way but she came full speed at 35 mph,” Parren said. “Then I thought she would hit the brakes but she didn’t.”
