No one was hurt in a Sunday morning accident in which a car crashed into a former store at 4902 Red Mill Road in Durham, a Durham County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said Monday.

Deputy Paul Sherwin said in an email that the driver of the vehicle was traveling east on Hamlin Road, and did not see a stop sign at the intersection with Red Mill Road.

The car went through the intersection and crashed into the building, he said. The owners of the building were sleeping upstairs, the email said, but no one was hurt, including the driver.

Sherwin said officials from the sheriff’s office responded to the crash at 7:37 a.m. Sunday. The vehicle was towed from the scene due to damage.

The driver was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign, Sherwin said.

Sherwin said there have been three crashes at the intersection since the start of the year, all in January. Sunday’s was the first that resulted in property damage to dwellings or buildings, he said.
