(KBTX) – Navasota

Back on July 23 around 10:00 p.m., a car crashed through the front of the Hi Ho Store and Cafe at Highway 6 and Highway 105.

The driver, Denise Wilson, faces an intoxication assault with a vehicle charge. Police say the 36-year-old intended to hit her brakes, but instead pushed the accelerator when pulling into the lot. Authorities allege she was under the influence of alcohol.

The clerk is back at work after suffering head and arm injuries, a remarkable thing considering the video showing him standing near the front of the store, only for the car to come slamming through the wall and into him.

Video was released after the NPD investigation wrapped up and was sent to the Grimes County District Attorney's Office.
