SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A merchant at 18th Street and Minnesota Avenue escaped serious injury Wednesday afternoon when a vehicle ran over his foot in his parking lot.
Officer Sam Clemens says motorists were corner cutting through his lot to avoid a lane closure while crews painted lines.
Clemens says the shopkeeper told one of the corner cutters that his driveway wasn’t a street and the two had words. He says the driver continued but hit the vicitm's foot, spinning him into the car's window. The suspect got out and asked the store owner why he hit the car. The owner replied that he was spun into the window and did not hit it on purpose. The suspect drove off.
Clemens says the victim got the car’s license plate but there has not been an arrest. The vicitm's injuries were minor.
