Minivan crashes into storage shed at The Hatch

A black Chrysler minivan backed into a storage shed behind The Hatch at about 6:30 p.m. tonight. One wall of the shed was completely demolished and many of the supplies inside it were destroyed as well.

An employee of Molly World LLC, which manages The Hatch, said the driver, an elderly woman, attempted to turn around on the road and must have gotten confused and accidentally shifted into reverse. No one was hurt in the crash.

After insurance information was collected, the driver was able to leave the scene in her van, though its back end was smashed.

“All you heard was a big ‘crunch’” said employee Elizabeth Jones, who was working in The Hatch at the time.

A portable grill in the shack was destroyed and several paint cans smashed.
