When it comes to business, one thing you hope to not have happen is damage to your property. Sadly for M& H, it seems as though their windows are vehicle magnets. Monday, March 29th, sometime around 2:30 p.m., M& H lost a few windows.
According to Sergeant Chris Nelson of the Hastings Police Department, the male driver “was pulling in to park and go into the store and his foot slipped and ran into the gas instead of the brake.”
One witness said on a condition of anonymity that once the driver hit the building, he continued to hold the gas for quite some time. Long enough to leave tire marks on the sidewalk that were very dark. As the witness approached the driver, he said the male was holding his chest and looked visibly shaken. The vehicle fit between the posts that are supposed to prevent this kind of accident.
Sgt. Nelson confirmed there were no injuries, and the driver “was issued a citation.” The full report was not available prior to printing.
The staff at M& H were working diligently to clean things up for the safety of everyone involved. See M& H Page 9

They seemed less shaken than the driver who was still on the scene. Before the scene was cleared by Hastings PD, there was already a handyman on site to cover the damaged portions of the building.
The driver was allegedly driving without insurance and without a license per a witness to the initial interaction with officers. No damage estimates were available yet as insurance had not been able to assess the building.
