The driver of a Honda SUV crashed into the Jared jewelry store on San Antonio Road Saturday morning, breaking through the glass windows and coming to a stop inside the showroom, according to police.
The Mountain View Police Department received reports of the collision around 9 a.m. on July 20, an hour before the jewelry store opens for the day. Officers arrived to find that the SUV had come to a stop inside the showroom just past the front doors, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
The 66-year-old driver told police that he crashed into the building due to a "mechanical issue" with his vehicle, Nelson said. He was treated at the scene for minor injuries. No shoppers, employees or other bystanders were injured during the incident.
The business's front doors and surrounding glass panes were damaged by the crash, Nelson said, but building inspectors determined that the building was safe.
Video and photos of the incident show the SUV struck the glass wall adjacent to the front doors facing the shopping center parking lot.
No further details were immediately available.
