A Columbia, Tennessee shop owner was nearly crushed to death after a crazed driver drove his pickup truck into a convenience store late last week.
The 40 year-old male driver was trying to kill his girlfriend, says authorities. She had been running to down the street, trying to escape from her boyfriend, when she ran into the convenience store. A security camera inside the store shows the truck ramming into the glass store front and crushing the owner between toppled shelves.
Luckily, the owner and the girlfriend were able to escape with only minor injuries. The angry boyfriend left his truck and tried to make a getaway in a witness’ car but crashed into a truck. He has since been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and theft.
