Woman hurt by debris as car hits grocery in Mount Morris

MOUNT MORRIS – A pedestrian suffered minor injuries Tuesday morning when she was struck by debris after a car plowed into the front of Sullivan’s Foods on state Route 64 in Mount Morris.

Mount Morris Police Chief Jason White said Sheila Jones, 63, of Mount Morris, was reading items on a bulletin board in the grocery’s foyer just outside the entrance shortly after 9 a.m. when a car driven by Zada Hitchcock, 84, of Mount Morris, struck the foyer wall.

Debris from the damaged wall struck Jones in the leg. She was taken by Mount Morris ambulance to KSB Hospital in Dixon.

White said Hitchcock told him she thought she passed out just as she was driving into a handicapped parking spot in front of the store. He said the car traveled through the foyer wall and into the front doors, where it came to rest.

Hitchcock was not injured.

The accident remains under investigation.
