Edwards Furniture had a strange piece of inventory end of up in its showroom Thursday afternoon Ė a Pontiac Grand Am.
The furniture store hasnít gone into the car business, but rather an unoccupied vehicle travelled through a front window of the business in the 1100 block of E. Main Street at about 2 p.m., police said.
Police reports stated the car stalled at the southside exit of H-E-B, and its driver, Desiderio Gonzalez Jr., exited the vehicle and began working on the engine. He was able to get the car to start up, police said, and it then began rolling on its own across several lanes along Main Street nearly hitting other vehicles.
The Grand Am jumped a curb and crashed into the showroom . The furniture store is consolidating inventory into its King Street location so the showroom was empty.
Gonzalez was not cited for the accident, police said.
