A woman driving away from Lenoir Community College slams into a bookstore across from campus. 

The accident happened at the Textbook Brokers on Hwy 58 South. Police say the call came in at 12:08 p.m. The manager of the store says he was in the building when 31-year-old Latoya Taylor hit the right hand corner of the building.

“Glass was flying everywhere—bricks, debris—you could smell smoke from the ruble,” Doug Swaney said. “When I looked over there I just see the lady shaking in the car.”

Police confirm Taylor may have suffered from a medical condition at the time of the incident. She was transported to Lenoir Memorial Hospital and suffered minor injuries.
