Some excitement in Plains

PLAINS TWP. -An out-of-control front-end loader crashed into the Jay Dee Sneaker King storefront Monday afternoon, causing moments of panic for employees and customers and opening a gaping hole in the landmark business.

"I heard it and then saw it coming right at us," said employee Kim Thomas, 29, who unknowingly was walking directly toward the oncoming vehicle just as it barreled through a brick wall into the store. "I froze. Thank God, I was able to run."

Jay Dee's has been around about as long as I have. I haven't been in the store in a while since $200 sneakers are not my thing. I have to get a digital camera so I can post pics of stuff like this.
