SUV crashes into The Jewelers, no one injured

The Wilson Post

The Jewelers of Lebanon received a scare Thursday morning when a grey Ford SUV crashed through their storefront located in Westview Plaza on West Main Street.

Eyewitness Tara Duncan, of Lebanon, said the SUV flew right by her as she was entering her car to leave Sun Tan City, located next door to The Jewelers.

The vehicle never stopped, she said, adding that the incident occurred just before 11 a.m.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Elroy Cantrell, 66, of Lebanon.

Lebanon Police Officer Wayne Howard said that Cantrell was driving the vehicle in the Westview Plaza parking lot, with his wife in the passenger seat, when he experienced a coughing spell.

He said that he meant to hit the brake but hit the accelerator instead, Howard explained. It was an accident.

The officer noted that both of the vehicle passengers refused hospital treatment and that no Jewelers employees were injured.

The Cashdales from Check Into Cash are to visit Lebanon on Thursday


A pair of special visitors will be in Lebanon on Thursday.

The Cashdales from Check Into Cash, a pair of Clydesdale horses owned by Check Into Cash, will make their first Lebanon appearance from 3 to 5 p.m. as part of a nationwide tour.

Lebanon is one of the first stops on the Cashdales tour across the nation, said Steve Scoggins, Check Into Cash president. We hope that everyone who has a chance can come down and see these beautiful and exquisite animals.

Scoggins said the Monday visit is the only local appearance until 2014 by the Cashdales who are named Casher and Dasher.

The horses are two of the eight members of the 2010 World Championship Team and are on track to visit the more than 1,100 Check Into Cash locations.

Prior to being acquired by Check Into Cash, the two Clydesdales appeared in the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York and escorted His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William and his wife, Catherine, to an event in 2011.

These world-class horses were chosen to be the two that were nearest to the Royal couple because of their good nature, said Allan Jones, CEO of Check Into Cash. We would like everyone in Lebanon to see them. They are a part of history.

The horses are rare among the Clydesdale breed, as they are black with white stocking markings. Less than 9 percent of the breed carry the mixed colors, Jones said. The horses are an equally matched team at 18.2 hands tall, which is significant because to qualify for competition the pair must be the same height.

Each horse has a weight of over 2,000 pounds. Their shoes are the size of dinner plates and weigh more than 3 pounds each. Most Clydesdales carry the common traits of strength and patience, Jones said.

Clydesdales are considered a tall breed, although originally the animals were one of the smaller breeds of draught or draw horses. These are horses that are primarily used for heavy hauling or pulling.

For more information on the Cashdales, call (423) 473-4227. The Lebanon Check Into Cash location is at 623 South Cumberland Street.
