Truck slams into Armstrong business

There was a scary situation at an Armstrong business Thursday.

Just after noon, a truck went through the front window at Armstrong Computer Service on Smith Drive and came to rest inside the store.

“I had just got out of my car and I heard a crash and glass shattering,” said one witness.

“I saw a truck inside the store and there was well over a foot (of space) behind him.”

There were three employees and a customer inside the business at the time of the crash.

“All of them were on the other side of the building and no one was injured,” said Ian Cummings, who owns Armstrong Computer Service and is the Armstrong-Spallumcheen fire chief.

It’s not known if the male driver of the truck was injured.

“The driver may have hit the wrong pedal,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

Firefighters, the police and paramedics converged on the scene and the incident remains under investigation.

It’s not known if charges could be laid.

“We are still very much in the early stages of the investigation,” said Molendyk.
