(DES MOINES REGISTER) PELLA, Iowa — Don French, a cashier at the Walmart here for almost five years, was shopping inside the store Thursday morning when he heard a loud crash.
A silver Ford F-150 pickup truck broke through the store's front doors. After it came to a rest, near a refrigerator in the produce department, three people were dead and two others were injured.
Witnesses said the truck was traveling at a high rate of speed as it went through the building entrance. The truck took out a concrete bollard placed outside the Walmart entrance to block vehicles from the door.
