Car crashes into cellphone store in southwest Houston

HOUSTON – A car plowed into a cellphone store in southwest Houston on Tuesday.

KPRC 2 was told it happened around noon at a store on Bissonnet Street and Cook Road.

An employee said the car was parked in front of the store when it suddenly came crashing through. He believes the driver stepped on the gas instead of the brake, while the driver claims her brakes failed.

Workers were cleaning up the damage to the store hours later. An employee said repairs will take a couple of days.
