Car Crashes Into Front Of Oakhurst Business

OAKHURST — An Oakhurst business was forced to shut down for what will likely be a few days after a car crashed into the front door, knocking merchandise to the floor and causing structural damage to the building.

At 1:45 p.m. CHP and Madera County Fire Station 12 personnel were called out to the Twisted Pipe Smoke Shop, located on Highway 41 next to Judy’s Donuts.

Sharma was busy cleaning up merchandise and a card rack that was knocked over, scattering greeting cards across the floor. Fortunately, no one was injured in what was described as a 10 mph crash.

The shop will likely be closed for a couple days as repairs are made.
