Police officers on scene reported that the driver had stopped in front of IKEA and got out to check where her delivery was suppose to go and the trucks’ parking brake might not have been set properly. The truck and trailer then rolled a couple of hundred feet and came to rest on the curb in the storefront.

The store received damage to the slate material and a concrete stop. The damage to the truck was unknown but it was going to have to be towed by a commercial towing firm to a repair station.

There were no injuries and the incident occurred on private property so the driver was not cited.
