"People had to get out of the way," said Alin Como. – They would be hurt.
Comeau, who runs Foodland in the small French coastal community, said the car had originally stopped in front of the entrance doors in a pedestrian zone where parking is not allowed. Then he pushed through the front doors and stopped inside before going to the back of the shop.

RCMP spokesperson Const. Chad Morrison said that "competence issues" caused the crash and that there were no tickets issued or charges were imposed.

"The vials are broken and it splashes everything and was in the paths where pickles and salad dressing, all this fluffy thing," she said. "The cooler he hit had … products like milk and yoghurt and kombucha and everything with yeast, so there is a lot of smell in the store."
Kame said she did not sleep last night because she thought how worse the incident might be.
