Imperial Sub Crash on January 16, 2011
PICTON, ON - countynews.ca No one was injured but a favourite sub shop in Picton will be closed for some time.

Prince Edward OPP say a car crashed through the front window of Imperial Submarine on Picton's Main Street on Sunday.

An employee of the store called police around 3:15 in the afternoon.

A police investigation revealed a vehicle heading southbound toward the hospital allegedly made an unsafe left hand turn to go into the gas bar.

In an attempt to avoid a collision, an oncoming car swerved, hitting the snowbank and careening into the sub shop's window.

A 17-year-old County resident has been charged.

Damage was reportedly caused to the brick, the window and some framing inside. There is no word on the value of damages nor how long the store will be closed.
