MANCHESTER, NH – An accident on South Main Street Monday morning caused one driver to lose control and swerve into the Food For Pets store, 468 S. Main St., crashing through a front window.

Manchester Police responded to the crash involving two vehicles at about 8:15 a.m.  a.m. near the intersection of South Main and Woodbury streets.
