NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- It wasn't such a great day at Gerald's for one Lowcountry driver.

A woman crashed her Chevy into the Gerald's Tires and Brakes location on Rivers Avenue Thursday morning. Witnesses on scene said she was taken away in an ambulance.

Dispatch operators she was taken to an area hospital.

Employees said the business will open around 9 a.m. despite the smashed garage. One Gerald's employee joked that the person driving the car "wanted to be first one in the door."
