LAYTON -- Scott Pilgrim and Darth Vadar lost the battle against a Ford Mustang at a Layton comic store.
In the area where superhero and Scott Pilgrim action figures once were displayed, Jon Pust and Rachael Williams -- co-owners of HeeBeeGeeBeez, Comix & Games, at 1986 N. Hill Field Road -- gingerly picked through shards of glass and placed the still-intact toys back on racks on the north wall.
They, along with their employees, shoveled the glass shards, bent metal frames and broken action figures, including a Darth Vadar, into containers for disposal.
A 1986 Ford Mustang, driven by a 76-year-old Layton man, crashed through the store's front window at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday, Layton Police Lt. Garret Atkin said.
Atkin said the man told police his car had "revved up unexpectedly" as he was backing up and sent him through the shop's windows.
Officers did not cite the man, and now it is up to the insurance company to sort out damages.
Williams said the accident caused about $20,000 worth of damage to the store.
Police called Williams and Pust at 8:45 a.m. to report the accident.
Both said they thought, when they heard about it, that a car had just pulled too far forward and "bumped" the window. Neither was prepared to see a car backed almost all the way inside the store, with the entire front window of the store shattered.
A glass company and contractor were called to help make repairs to the store.
Williams said she hopes the store will be open for business as usual today.
"It could've been much worse," she said. "We could've been open and customers could've been in the store. Kids love the toy section."
The store opens at 11 a.m.
