Fortunately no one was injured during any of the collisions.

A building inspector was called to evaluate the CVS structure and the support pole was stabilized.
Alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the accident and the CVS store did not need to close during the cleanup.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

It had nothing to do with the drivers age... I'm sure.
