By Kyle McDonald | Staff Writer Published:

The Portage County Sheriff's Office and Ravenna Township Fire Department were called to the Dollar General store at 3508 S.R. 59 in Ravenna Township Tuesday afternoon after a Chevrolet Blazer crashed into the side of the store.

The incident occurred at about 2 p.m.

The vehicle did not go clear through the wall, but damage was visible to the storefront.

Store employees said the impact of the crash threw items off the shelves and caused additional structural damage inside.

Employees also described a large cloud of black smoke that engulfed the front of the building after the impact, which was caused from the vehicle's rear tires spinning.

No employees or customers were injured.

Additional details regarding the wreck were not immediately available.
