The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — A vehicle has crashed onto the roof of a supermarket in Pittsburgh, and the store has been evacuated as a precaution.

The crash happened late Tuesday morning at a Giant Eagle store in the city’s Greenfield neighborhood.

The store sits on a lot below some other city streets. Images on WPXI-TV show the right-rear roof is slightly below street level.

It appears the motorist drove off a road above the store, through a chain-link fence and onto the store roof. It landed right-side up.

Fire Chief Mike Mullen says the impact tore part of the roofing and gasoline leaked from the car into the store.

Giant Eagle spokesman Dick Roberts says nobody inside the store was hurt, and Pittsburgh police say the driver wasn’t hurt either.
