South Metro Public Information Officer Eric Hurst said the accident near the Stroh Ranch subdivision occurred at 3:17 p.m., and all of those injured were either in the car or inside the store. The vehicle's driver was temporarily trapped and pulled from the car by South Metro responders.
The driver "was trapped from the amount of debris," Hurst said. "They didn't have to cut the car open."
Of the six injured, one was in critical condition, two in serious condition and three suffered minor injuries.
Sherry Corcoran, public information officer for the Parker Police Department, said officers are investigating whether a medical condition caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Corcoran said the car also struck a parked vehicle before driving over a median and through the storefront.
"It's a difficult situation for all involved," Corcoran said at approximately 7:50 p.m. "The crash team is still talking to witnesses, still trying to determine what caused this."
One of those injured was a female passenger in the car, described by Corcoran as a Mercedes sedan. The other victims were all inside the store, according to Hurst.
South Metro tweeted video showing firefighters clearing a significant amount of merchandise from inside the store as they cleared the way to look for more potential victims.
