A Christian County convenience store nearly wound up with a new drive-thru after an accident this week. According to police reports, Luke Allen of Taylorville was pulling into the parking lot of the Village Pantry in Stonington Tuesday (09-23) when he apparently lost control and struck the front door area of the building. 

 Allen reportedly told officers his flip-flop had gotten stuck on the accelerator pedal. 

 His vehicle suffered damage to the front bumper, hood, side panels and headlight. No injuries were reported. The reports don't specify what damage the crash did to the store.
