COLLEYVILLE - Two people were injured when a car drove into the front of a family-run convenience store in Colleyville Thursday evening.
Carlos Guajardo, 68, drove a Mazda SUV into the front doors of Hall’s Grocery, which has a popular wine and spirits section, on the 4200 block of Glade Road.
His car hit two women inside the store -- Renee Andrews, 36, and Dell Brooks, 44.
Guajardo was taken by ground ambulance to a hospital in Bedford, and later arrested. Colleyville police said alcohol was likely a factor in the crash.
One of the female victims that was pinned underneath the car was flown to Parkland in critical condition. The other woman suffered cuts and bruises, but was expected to be okay.
Witnesses at the scene told News 8 Guajardo was disoriented and some suspected he was intoxicated. It wasn't clear how fast he was driving.
Charlie Hall, who runs the convenience store and said the family has owned the business for 30 years, told News 8 it felt like a "war zone" just after the crash.
He said he had guard poles in front of the store's main entrance "just in case," but still never expected that anyone would actually come crashing through the door.
"It was really scary," he said.
A woman who said she was the bookkeeper at Hall’s Grocery told KLTV in Tyler that she heard a loud crash and glass breaking, and saw “a woman wedged between the car and the stairwell."
Video of the crash was released on Friday.
Colleyville police took over the investigation from the Colleyville Fire Department as they determine if the driver was impaired.
The building remained structurally sound after the crash, but would require extensive repairs, according to investigators.
