Car crashes into 2 storefronts in Blue Ash

Driver crashes car into two buildings in Blue Ash, cleanup underway

BLUE ASH, Ohio (FOX19) - Police responded to a car crash early Friday evening after a car went through two storefronts in Blue Ash.

The incident occurred in a row of shops at the corner of Cooper Road and Kenwood Road sometime before 6 p.m.

Blue Ash police at the scene say a woman drove through Servatti Pastry, made a left-hand turn and then plowed into the shoe store, Fleet Feet Sports, next door.

One person outside the building reportedly sustained minor injuries.

A woman at the scene says the car’s gas pedal got stuck, resulting in the damage.

Fleet Feet Sports owner Frank DeJulius says this is the third time something like this has happened to them.

“In this case, she drove through the bakery next to us, somehow managed to take a hard left turn and drove into our store and ended up in our showroom,” DeJulius said.

“I just keep thinking back that no one was hurt, and it’s drywall, it’s paint,” he continued. “It’s a bunch of running shoes and a bunch of running clothes. Everything can be replaced, and everything will be replaced. So it’s a bummer, but you can’t replace lives.”
