The Crook County Sheriff's office is reporting that a Prineville man accidently crashed into the Powell Butte Country Store, and injured a worker inside.


The crash happened Saturday afternoon, and the impact was strong enough that a person inside the store received minor injuries.


The Crook County Sheriff's Office says 21 year old David Milks of Prineville was driving a 1997 Mercury Sable and Milks says he applied the brakes to stop, but they failed and he wasn't able to avoid striking the building.


An employee of the store was struck by equipment inside the store.  There was also notable damage to the exterior and interior of the store.


According to the owner of the vehicle, they had just had repair work done on the braking system. There were no citations issued in connection with Saturday's crash.
