A beer store employee in Prince Albert was injured Monday night when a car lost control and drove right into the store.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. CST at the Best Western Hotel off-sale at 602 36th Street East.

According to hotel worker Keaton Cloud, a car hit a parked vehicle and then drove through the glass into the store, knocking over beer coolers.

"Half of the car was inside of the building. The whole front of the car was totally messed up. Entrance way of the beer store is all gone," Cloud said.
