This 7-Eleven considering replacing front door with garage door

Yet another car drives into Somerville 7-Eleven building

SOMERVILLE — It just keeps happening.

Police were investigating a crash Thursday morning that involved a car driving into the front door of the 7-Eleven convenience store on Mercer Street in Somerville.

This marks the sixth time a car has driven into the same building, according to the store's manager, who says thousands of dollars have been spent making repairs over the years.

Just after 9 a.m. Thursday, the driver of the vehicle apparently meant to slow down, but hit his accelerator instead of his brakes when entering the parking lot, according to Danny Batel, the 7-Eleven manager.

The right side of the front door had damage on the bottom, but no one was injured in the incident, he said.

"He just came from the road, and instead of hitting the brake, he accelerated," he said.

In January, a car crashed through the front window of the store and wound up all the way inside. No one was injured, but the front glass window was smashed.

Batel said he thinks cars keep crashing at his location because the store does not have any yellow poles out front separating the parking lot from the building.

Batel said he's been in the store every time a car has driven into the location.

"It just keeps happening," he said.
