HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — At around 8:30 p.m. on November 23, State Police in Hollidaysburg responded to a car accident in the Walmart parking lot on Plank Road.
A man was driving a 2006 Chevy Equinox in the parking lot and after checking that it was clear, he turned left into a crosswalk section.
Wade Eischer, 50, Altoona, was pushing the shopping cart returns when the front bumper of the driver’s car hit the motorized shopping cart collector. Eischer tried to jump out of the way.
The force of the impact caused the shopping cart collector to spin and hit the employee. They report that Eischer was able to get up and walk around.
The cart collector came to final rest also in an upright position against the driver’s car.
Eischer was taken inside of Walmart and waited there for EMS.
