Van plows into Covington Pike deli

A van drove into the front of Covington Pike market late Thursday morning.

The van drove into Donnie's Corner Market and Deli, in the 2000 block of Covington Pike, around 11:30am.

Employees at the store said the driver was a regular customer, who appeared to step on the gas pedal instead of the brake.

Witnesses said three customers were taken to the emergency room.

"Our customers were sitting in the middle of the tables," said Jewel Steward. "Thank God that they weren't sitting here right in front of the window."

Video from Chopper 5 showed at least one person at the scene of the crash being taken to an ambulance in a stretcher. Witnesses said it appeared all of the victims would survive.
