No one was injured Wednesday when a vehicle crashed into the front of a convenience store in Goleta, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The accident occurred shortly after 7:30 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store at 7390 Calle Real, said Vince Agapito, a Fire Department spokesman.

The full-size white SUV ended up almost entirely in the store, which had several customers inside at the time, Agapito said.

Neither the driver — a woman in her 40s — nor the people in the store were hurt.

The Fire Department was bringing in its urban search and rescue trailer to help with shoring up the building.

“Apparently the vehicle struck a primary support beam for the building,” Agapito said, adding that a city building inspector also was being called in to assess the situation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
