A Harlan woman suffered minor injuries yesterday, when her car slammed into a repair shop in Avoca. Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker explains it began with a routine visit for some work on her car. The sheriff says her car came up to the shop and about the time she was waved forward to drive into the shop, the driver suffered a diabetic reaction that made her black out. She pushed the accelerator to the floor. The 54-year-old Harlan woman’s car kept going.Sheriff Danker says the vehicle speeded up, hit a wall inside the garage, kept going and hit a stock car and a tool chest, shoving the stock car into a hoist that had a car up on top of it at the time — and that car fell of the hoist, onto the stock car. The driver of the car that started it all is identified as Marcia Lucke, of Harlan. She suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital. Nobody else was hurt in the incident, that all happened about 10:30 Monday morning.
