2 injured after car crashes through Henrico 7-Eleven

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- An employee and a customer were injured when a driver crashed his car through the front window of a 7-Eleven.

Henrico Police said the accident happened at the convenience store at 3600 Mechanicsville Turnpike near Byron Street around 11 p.m. Thursday.

Krystal Odom was working the night shift behind the register when the Ford 4-door plowed through the store.

"I heard people scream," she said. "I heard people try to jump out of the way."

The driver, Trevon Heath, told police he mistook the gas pedal for the brake.

Odom said a customer was standing near the coffee and was in the car's path as it pushed shelves and glass into her direction.

"[The customer] found out she had a broken elbow," she said. "At the end of the day, it could’ve been a child standing there. It could’ve been someone dead right now."

Police said the customer and an employee were taken to the hospital for their minor injuries.

Heath was charged with reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, no insurance, and on a rejection sticker.

A building inspector will survey the damage Friday morning.
