CLEARWATER, Florida-- Two people suffered minor injuries after a Ford SUV crashed through the front window of the Blockbuster Video store on Gulf-to-Bay in Clearwater around 7 p.m. Friday.

The vehicle finally came to a stop in the middle of the store after taking out several display isles.

Clearwater Fire Rescue crews said earlier the female diver of the SUV suffered a medical issue just before the crash. 

Later reports say alcohol may have been a factor, though toxicology reports are pending. 

She was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

A customer inside the store also suffered minor injuries but did not need to be transported. 


Clearwater Emergency crews say other than the broken glass, there was no structural damage to the building.
