The Dollar Tree, located on 17 Mile Road, behind Independent Bank, does not have a drive through window—but they almost did last Friday, April 15, when a customer hit the building with their vehicle.

According to Sgt. Jason Kelley, of the Kent County Sheriff Department’s Cedar Springs Unit, they received a call at approximately 10:40 a.m. of a private property crash at The Dollar Tree, 4117 17 Mile RD NE. The incident involved a vehicle that struck The Dollar Tree, causing damage to the building.

The driver told deputies that she mistakenly pushed the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal when parking her vehicle in front of The Dollar Tree. The vehicle lurched forward and struck the building, causing a large hole where it struck.

The crash did not cause any injuries.
