Van crashes into Coulter Discount in Coral Gables

Driver not injured; 2 others taken to hospital with minor injuries


CORAL GABLES, Fla. – A woman crashed her van into a Coral Gables store Monday afternoon.

The woman told police someone cut her off in traffic, so she veered to get out of the way and slammed into the Coulter Discount store at the corner of Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Madeira Avenue.

Coral Gables police said the driver was not injured, but two customers inside the store suffered minor cuts and bruises.

Gretal Dimas said a man fell on top of her as the van slammed into the store.

"We both got pretty banged up in there, but thank God we made it out OK," she told Local 10.
