A customer in a San Marcos 7-Eleven suffered serious injuries when a car driven by Teresa Petersen drove over the sidewalk, through the plate glass window of the storefront, and all the way through until it hit the back wall. She was going so fast that the rear masonry wall was damaged.
Carlos Gradilla, 31, was shipping in the store at the time and was hit by the car. Gradilla was seriously injured, and was taken to Palomar Hospital for what was suspected to be a skull fracture and internal injuries.
Authorities are unclear what caused the accident, and it didn’t appear that Petersen was under the influence.
Here is news video footage from the crash:
