Car crashes through store window in Clearwater

CLEARWATER — A car smashed through the front of a Blockbuster video rental store early Friday night at 2045 Gulf to Bay Boulevard.

A woman driving the car suffered an unspecified medical issue about 6:40 p.m., causing her to lose control of the car, officials said. The car slammed through the front windows and came to rest near the middle of the store.

Late Friday, authorities said that alcohol might have been a factor in the crash. Toxicology tests are pending, officials said.

No one was injured in the crash. The woman was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, authorities said.
