Romany Road Kroger reopens after SUV crash

With plastic covering the gaping hole in the front of the store, the Kroger on Romany Road reopened for business at 8 a.m. Sunday after apparently receiving the all-clear from city inspectors.

The store closed Saturday after an SUV driven by an unidentified 79-year-old woman crashed through the front about 3 p.m.

The store plans to remain open while repairs are being made.

Lexington police said the driver of the SUV was trying to park on Romany when she mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the brake, sending the vehicle through the wall and into checkout lane 5.
