KALONA (KWWL) -

Authorities in Washington County are trying to figure out who forced a car to drive through a grocery store in Kalona.

Deputies say someone put a brick on the car's gas pedal and let the car drive into the front of the store.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened early Tuesday morning at J.W.'s grocery store in the 100 block of E Avenue in Kalona.

They say the car was stolen from a nearby repair shop.

No one was injured and the store will remain open while repairs are being made.
