Crash sends car into front of pawn shop in Margate

Nobody injured when car slams into front of store

MARGATE, Fla. – A crash at a Margate intersection Tuesday morning sent a car barreling toward a pawn shop.

The crash was reported about 10 a.m. at Coconut Creek Parkway and U.S. Highway 441.

Margate-Coconut Creek Fire Rescue said a minivan and car collided at the intersection, sending the car smashing into the front of the pawn shop.

The pawn shop was open at the time, but the car did not crash through the store.

"It's going to be some cleanup and a little bit of overtime probably, but we'll get it worked out," employee Colin Keeler told Local 10 News. "The important thing is to just be happy that nothing happened to anyone and our business wasn't harmed, you know?"

Both drivers were taken to a hospital.

Southbound lanes of U.S. 441 were closed during the investigation.
