A car crashed into a Kamloops deli this afternoon and RCMP say driver inattentiveness may be the reason.

The incident, which happened today, Nov. 13, was captured in photos by David Rodgers who was waiting inside Gary's European Sausage and Deli at 750 Fortune Dr. 

Normally, Rodgers sits in the waiting chairs against the window inside the deli shop while he waits for his order, but since there wasn't a big lineup he decided to stand.

"Somebody sitting in those chairs would have gotten hurt," he says, after witnessing the car crash through the storefront.

Rodgers managed to squeeze out the crushed door to check on the driver of the vehicle. He helped the woman turn the car off and waited around until police showed up.

"She was in the wrong gear, she thought she was going back and she went forward, went onto the curb and crashed through the window," he says. "Nobody was hurt, (the driver) was fine but she was shook up."

Kamloops RCMP media spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says the incident happened at about 2:15 p.m. and there were no reported injuries.

"There's nothing suspicious. It wasn't a vehicle purposely doing it and at this time we don't know what the cause was," Shelkie says. "Perhaps it was driver inattentiveness."
