According to investigators, Hitchens failed to stop at the posted stop sign and continued in a southwesterly direction before entering into the parking lot of the Sandy Fork General Store located at 12324 West Laurel Road.  The Mustang then struck a gas pump in the front of the store before crashing into the front of the business, police said.
