Police: Drunk Driver Slams Into Car Rental Store

QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Police say a suspected drunken driver crashed into a car rental shop in Massachusetts, injuring one person inside the store.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. Monday when 53-year-old Alan Whiffen drove his pickup truck into a Hertz building in Quincy.

Stanley Vozzella, a mechanic who works next door to the building, tells WCVB-TV the crash sounded like a bomb.

Quincy police say a customer inside the store has been hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. A spokesman for Brewster Ambulance says four more people were treated at the scene.

Whiffen has been charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, operating to endanger and speeding. He could not be reached for comment.
