A car crashed into a flower shop in Northridge on Friday, November 6th. Devonshire Police Department is the lead investigator for the case. A female driver was traveling on a silver HR-V Honda when she lost control of her vehicle and struck several mailboxes on Reseda Boulevard, before crashing into Flower World & Gifts, a flower shop located on the 8300 blocks of the street. One of the shop attendants saw the incoming vehicle and managed to notify the other workers to flee from the shop. The storefront was badly damaged and multiple shop items were broken as well. However, neither the shop attendants nor the shop visitors were injured from the incident. The same cannot be said for the Honda driver, who sustained injuries severe enough to require hospitalization. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
