Car pierces wall of Fargo Kmart

FARGO – A driving mishap resulted in major damage to a wall of the Kmart store located at 2301 University Drive South in Fargo Friday afternoon.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. Friday, when a man was backing his car in the parking lot and the vehicle struck the store, punching a whole through the exterior brickwork, said Nick Bosh, the store manager.

Bosh said it appears the driver’s shoes were wet and his foot slipped off the brake pedal and onto the gas pedal.

A dollar amount for the damage had not been determined as of Sunday afternoon, according to Bosh, who said the hole, which occurred in the area of the store’s health and beauty department, has been boarded up pending repairs.

No one was injured in the incident, Bosh said.
