Thieves crash stolen truck into B.C. convenience store

first_imgAnyone hoping to pick up lottery tickets or a snack at The Bay’s Convenience Store in Horseshoe Bay before their ferry ride to Vancouver Island this week had better make alternative plans, because the business will probably be undergoing some pretty serious renovations. Video captured by a tow truck driver in the Royal Avenue and Bruce Street area of the coastal B.C. community early on Monday morning shows part of the spectacular and obviously intentional crash, wherein a green Ram 2500 repeatedly smashes into the storefront. The stolen pickup truck actually enters the building, then turns completely around before getting stuck. RELATED The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever 71-year-old drives car into Saskatoon business“I looked as they backed in and just stopped there and I watched for a minute, and they took off up the road,” said witness Terry LaLiberte in an interview with Global News. “There’s a taxi across the road and I just realized they did a U-turn… coming back down, rammed right back into the place, going in and nose-first. This time actually went right inside and turned around.” COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Trending Videos Stolen Chevrolet smashes into Saskatchewan hospital Thieves crash stolen truck stuck into BC convenience store PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?
