Car Crashes into Store

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) Police in northeast Kansas are investigating why a woman smashed her car into a payday loan store, pinning an employee behind a desk.

KCTV reports the incident happened around 10 a.m. Thursday at Ameribest Payday Loans and Check Cashing, located in a strip mall in the city of Olathe.
