A car crashed into the CVS in Somers Point Monday

The CVS on New Road in Somers Point was temporarily closed to be checked for safety after a car crashed into it Monday, but by late afternoon it was reopened.

SOMERS POINT — A car crashed into the CVS on New Road on Monday, a manager at the location confirmed.

The store was closed to customers as the building was inspected for safety, the manager said.

A 911 call came in around 10:11 a.m. Monday, said Somers Point Police Chief Robert Somers.

A 52-year-old Newtown Square, Pennsylvania woman driving a 2004 Honda hit the support pillar and a brick wall on the side of the pharmacy, Somers said.

A sign on the entrance Monday afternoon read, “Store temporarily closed due to safety concerns.”

City police, fire and code enforcement responded, Somers said.

The store was deemed safe, and customers were inside at 5:30 p.m. Damage to the wall and a pillar to the right of the entrance was visible.

All other requests for comment were deferred to CVS’s corporate offices.
