According to a Metro Police arrest report, a driver suspected of DUI claimed the brakes in her car didn’t work when she crashed it into a south valley convenience store which led to three people getting injured, pinning one of them under a slot machine.
Just before 1 a.m. on Sunday, Lula Mae Jack, 53, pulled into a 7-Eleven at 1805 E. Tropicana Avenue, near Maryland Parkway, police said.
Be that as it may, police said her Buick did not stop in the parking lot. It continued, running over a victim’s foot outside the store and crashing into slot machines inside, injuring two other people inside.
One of them was pinned under one of the machines, which broke his neck, police said.
Officers discovered that Jack’s eyes were red, and she failed sobriety tests, blowing over the legal limit, police said. She told investigators she had one beer at home.
Jack was booked with a $50,000 bond at the Clark County Detention Center on a DUI count, jail logs show. She remained jailed on Friday evening.
