Riley Rose of Winchester peered into the window of Barett Shoes in the Regency Shopping Center, 2335 Nicholasville Road in Lexington, where a car landed after crashing through the window July 31, 1992. No one was injured in the accident. The driver, Stewart C. Morris, 78, of Frankfort, told accident investigators that he heard a loud noise after he started his car. The car accelerated quickly and jumped into reverse, then clipped another car and jumped a median and curb. "I don't know if there was a driver error or something wrong with the vehicle," said Safety Officer Bart Coonce. "He's going to have it checked out." Coonce said Morris had a good driving record. "He'd never been in an accident before." Photo by Davd Stephenson | staff
