In December of last year, four convenience store employees at an Engen petrol station outside the Pavilion Shopping Center in Westville were injured when a Hyundai drove through the main window.

The incident also occurred in the early morning hours. Paramedics were called to the area to treat the injured. Both the patients and the driver were transferred to local hospitals for treatment, according to ALS Paramedics spokesperson Garrith Jamieson.
