Holly Pond gas station remains open after damage

HOLLY POND, AL (WAFF) - It's business as usual at a convenience store in Holly Pond, despite an accident that damaged the building Saturday.

According to staff at the Jet Pep off of Highway 278 East, a customer parked too close to the building late Saturday night.

When trying to correct the parking job, they said, the driver mistakenly accelerated into the building.

A large portion of the building's side wall was damaged.

The hole is temporarily patched with plywood and materials from inside the store while more permanent repairs are being arranged.
