LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Two people were hurt Wednesday when a driver slammed into a Lynchburg vape shop.

According to the Lynchburg Fire Department, it happened around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at 7701 Timberlake Road.

A fire department battalion chief told WDBJ7 the driver had minor injuries, and was not taken to a hospital. One person inside the vape shop received minor injuries from debris.

The battalion chief says the driver said she experienced brake failure, and her car went from Old Graves Mill Road, through the parking lot and into the building.

The building’s windows and door were damaged, but the battalion chief said the building was still structurally sound. The vape shop is next door to West Side Deli. The crash did not damage the wall between the two businesses.
