El Cerrito CVS location adds to its long tally of vehicles crashing through store window

Another year, another vehicle goes through the window at the CVS pharmacy at San Pablo Avenue at Moeser Lane in El Cerrito.

The latest crash happened about 4:30 p.m. Friday, July 28, at the south end of the store, now walled off for merchandise storage.

“It went in pretty far,” a clerk said Saturday.

A shopper on Saturday said he had to return to make his purchase because the store closed after the crash the day before. He said he had just arrived when he heard what sounded like an explosion.

Police and fire crews arrived quickly, he said.

By our unofficial count, this is the ninth time in the past 22 or so years that a vehicle has gone through the window, including three over the past three years.

We again suggest that the store should be renamed “Target.”
