Cars drive through and into stuff everyday. So why all the hoopla when it happens to an Apple store? Because it’s an Apple store. Why else. Fans of the brand, or haters, would probably like to think there is a greater conspiracy or story than meets the eye. Such as “angry Apple iPhone 5 user crashes store in spite of slow iOS”. But alas, it just seems to be a case of human error.
Unofficial reports on the ground report the crash was caused by a 60-year old man. It happened in Chicago’s Lincoln Park when the what appears to be a Lincoln Town car (how fitting) lost control and crashed through the front of the store’s glass facade. Good thing the 3rd Street Promenade is relegated to pedestrian traffic only.
