D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - An oriental market in D'Iberville got some unexpected attention Sunday when a car drove through the store front shortly after 12 p.m.

Captain Clay Jones, with the D'Iberville Police Department, confirmed to WLOX News that a 64-year-old man drove his car into the front of Saigon Oriental Food Market on Central Avenue.
