TIMBERVILLE, Va.- A drunk driver crashes into a store building in Timberville, and now neighbors are concerned for their safety.

Police say a man drove into Whit's Market off Route 42 on Saturday.

Now there's a hole in the wall that goes right through to the inside of the store.

Christal Yowell is a regular customer, and she says she's glad no one was hurt.

"Well we live just up the road so I'm just glad my kids were not out. I have children, and that people would drive this fast and have to run into a building to stop is pretty scary," said Yowell.

Yowell says people need to be more careful on main roads.

Police still haven't released the driver's name. They say he's now being held in jail for driving under the influence.
