Giving new meaning to drive-thru pharmacy

Customers and employees of Rite Aid Pharmacy at the intersection of U.S. Highway 278 and Emory Street were startled Monday afternoon when a vehicle crashed through the front door. An elderly man told Covington Police that his foot slipped from the brake onto the gas pedal, causing his vehicle to accelerate onto the sidewalk and into the store. The incident occurred around 2:45 p.m. The man and his wife, who had just been released from the hospital, were unhurt in the incident.
