    I hope the driver is ok.... was his license revoked because he had seizures?

    My niece knows this gentleman and he had a seizure. How about people stop criticizing and making assumptions about a situation they know nothing about? Let's just be thankful that it was property that was damaged and no PERSON was injured or killed.

    I have heard, first hand, that the Man was driving on Greenville Blvd, turned onto Red Banks and drove "left of center" into Adams lot and drove over some bushes into Che Bella's parking lot and ended in their store. It is amazing he didn't hit anything on the way! I was at Starbucks that morning, there are people awake that early on Sunday!

    This is so odd to me... Che Bella's in the back corner of the parking lot, this guy went probably 50 yards including turns and speed bumps before hitting the store and couldn't stop?

    Well, its not like Greenville is a big tourist attraction or anything, I cant even figure out why someone would want to live there with all the crime. It only makes sense that most of the accidents there would be caused by someone that lives there or near there and would be the same case for most towns or cities anywhere in the world.

    I don't quite get it. How do you people figure that drivers are classified as good or bad drivers depending on which town they live in. It makes no difference where you live, there are good drivers and bad drivers everywhere.

    haha I noticed the chrysler key and then the gmc piece from the front end inside the store! the key is also a key for their newer cars and that is definitely not a new car. I hope the owners get the whole mess figured out because I love shopping at Che Bella! such cute stuff!

    I have lived in Raleigh, and drivers in Greenville are 10x worse.

    I think some people like JDLadd up here needs to have the waaaambulance called on him. To the one who said that Greenville is as bad in crime and traffic as Charlotte, lay off the pipe.
