Driver plows through Hartwell Walgreens

CINCINNATI -- A driver lost control of his SUV and plowed through the front of a Hartwell Walgreens store overnight, according to Cincinnati police.

Officers say Aaron L. Ross, 33, was heading south on Galbraith Road when he struck a curb and ran into the store.

Ross received minor injuries in the crash and was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Officers said speed and alcohol were also a factor in the crash. They added Ross would be cited for failure to maintain control and OVI.

A building inspector was assessing damage to the Walgreens Saturday morning. A manager for the store said customers should contact Walgreens to plan prescription pick-ups from another location.

It was not clear how long the Walgreens would remain closed.

WCPO reporter Shannon Kettler contributed to this report.
