Car Plows Into Kress Liquor Store on Haddonfield-Berlin Road

The accident happened shortly before 11 a.m. on the border of Haddonfield and Cherry Hill.

An SUV plowed through the front window of Kress Wine store on Haddonfield-Berlin Road just outside of Haddonfield shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The yeasty smell of beer and wine hung as heavy in the air as the humidity on this swampy morning as store employees picked through glass shards to mop up the wreckage inside. The left front window was completely demolished in the crash, which took out the front window diplay of liquor and beer. 

There were no immediate reports of injuries. The store was open at the time; an employee declined to comment.

"A woman with a carload of kids may have turned around to attend to a child and may have left the car in drive and hit the accelerator," Maryann Campling, an eyewitness said.

The driver walked away from the scene unharmed as her gray SUV was towed away within 45 minutes of the crash. 

Please look for more details when they become available.

"...quick to judge"? What if someone was standing by the window? What would she say to the next of kin? Sorry your loved one is dead, but I'm a good mother who had to tend to my kid?

What if I hit the lottery? what if there was world peace? what if there wasn't crime? It apparently it was an accident, pulled over as to not be distracted while driving. Your comment makes it sound like she CHOSE to go through the window. It must be nice to be so perfect as you as to not make any mistakes, though this was a big one.

These comments are depressing. What is wrong with people these days? Just the old "I'm brave in internet anonymity" striking again.
