Some people in Topeka are counting their lucky stars today after an SUV slammed into a mattress store.

The driver of this Buick rendezvous was taken to the hospital after she jumped the curb and her car landed entirely inside the mattress store at 29th and Topeka Blvd.

A pillar stopped the SUV from going further, witnesses say the SUV missed a young boy by just a few inches, the store manager says all he heard was glass shattering, another woman who works next door says she had to reach in and put the car in park.

A Topeka man says he and his wife were walking toward the front of the store when the crash happened, his wife lost her sandal under the car but we’re happy to report teh couple only suffered bruising and some minor cuts.

The store’s owner says he plans to stay open while workers fix the store front.


Kansas First News will update as additional information becomes available.
