A compact car surged out of control and smashed into a Post Road East liquor store Saturday evening, shattering a large plate-glass display window.

The incident took place about 6:15 p.m. Saturday when the car leapt the sidewalk in front of the Greens Farms Spirit Shop, 1250 Post Road East, struck the storefront and shattered one of its display windows.

However, no one in the car or inside the store was injured, according to firefighters dispatched to the accident scene. There also was no structural damage to the store, they reported.

The car had to be towed from the scene.

Firefighters cordoned off the store's interior in front of the broken window as a safety precaution until repairs were made.
