Local Man Runs into Wal-Mart

Horace Robinson, 60, drove his car into the side of a Wal-Mart store on Southwest Archer Road on November 1. Robinson was driving a gray PT Cruiser convertible by himself when he drove his car into the side of the store at 8:40 a.m. Officials are not quite sure why Robinson drove into the Wal-Mart, though rescue officials say that witnesses saw Robinson stop at the stop sign to the west of the main doors and slowed down and then accelerated into the side of the building.
In a news release, rescue officials said that Robinson “did not appear to have been wearing his seat belt, which may have caused him to slide down under the dash.” Robinson had to be extracted from his vehicle and was unconscious for most of it but he woke up later in the process. He was taken to Shands at the University of Florida. Robinson was reported to be in stable condition.
Robinson had a wheelchair symbol on his license plate that indicated the driver of the car had a permanent disability and needed a disabled person parking permit. This is just another reminder to wear your seatbelts!
