A 26-year-old employee of a Council Bluffs business sustained injuries Monday when a pickup truck crashed into the store.
The incident occurred about 11:15 a.m. at Camping World at 2802 S. 21st St. near the Mid-America Center, according to a spokesman for the Council Bluffs Police Department. The injured man, an Omaha resident whose name was not released, went to a local hospital by private vehicle.
Investigators determined that a 76-year-old man from Neola, Iowa, was driving a 2023 Ford F-150 when it went over a parking curb in front of the store. The front half of the pickup entered the building, striking an employee sitting at a desk and knocking him backward.
Police said the pickup punched a hole, approximately 12 feet by 12 feet, in the front of the building. The pickup did not damage the building’s structural supports, and the store remained open.
