PITTSBURGH (AP) - Emergency crews have responded after a vehicle crashed onto the roof of a Giant Eagle supermarket in Pittsburgh.

The incident happened in the city’s Greenfield neighborhood. Some witnesses tell police the driver lost control of the vehicle and went through a fence along a road above the store.

WPXI-TV was showing that the roof of the video was immediately adjacent to the street.

Giant Eagle spokesman Dick Roberts says the store is temporarily closed because firefighters were concerned about gasoline or oil leaking from the vehicle.

But Roberts says nobody was hurt inside the store and Pittsburgh police indicated the driver wasn’t hurt either.

Roberts says the supermarket chain hopes to reopen the store later Tuesday afternoon, provided emergency crews allow that.
