Woman injured after SUV crashes into Germantown convenience store

An SUV smashed through the front of a Germantown, Maryland, convenience store Sunday night, injuring a woman inside.

First responders were dispatched to a Shell gas station at the Milestone Center on Frederick Road, south of Ridge Road, in Germantown around 6:30 p.m. Sunday for a report of a vehicle that had sped into the station’s food mart.

Montgomery County Fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer posted images to Twitter showing a beige Mercedes SUV up against refrigerators amid smashed glass and piles of merchandise:

A woman inside the store was transported to a hospital. Her injuries are not considered life-threatening, Piringer said.

The SUV’s driver has been charged with negligent driving and failure to obey a traffic control device.
