Late Friday afternoon, September 16, Rosemary, 66, drove her car bearing Maryland plates through the front doors of the Clairemont Town Square UPS Store. She was triaged by a paramedic squad, which was able to clear her health without taking her to the hospital.
I found the driver next door in the sports bar, sitting on a stool by the door. She told me, “I just have a bump on my head and my blood pressure’s all right.”
Her Clairemont cousins were summoned and arrived on the scene quickly to accompany her while she waited for her car to be extricated from the store’s entryway.
Asked how the accident occurred, she replied, “I hit ‘go’ instead of ‘stop’” while parking in a disabled space directly in front of the store.
A UPS employee said no one inside the store was injured during the incident and that the business would remain closed until further notice.
