COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A Columbus man says he was choking on a cough drop when he crashed into a North Linden pawn shop.
The crash happened shortly after noon Wednesday at Lev’s Pawn Shop on the 700 block of East Hudson Street.
The driver told police he thinks the impact of the crash knocked the cough drop free, performing a sort of Heimlich maneuver with the steering wheel.
Several windows and a door of the pawn shop were damaged. No injuries were reported.
Hudson Street was closed for a short time and has since reopened.
