A vehicle plowed through a Chalmette clothing store this afternoon,
authorities said. One person was reported injured, but the extent of her
injuries are not known.

Around 3:14 p.m. today a Ford Thunderbird plowed into the All About Me
clothing store on East Judge Perez Drive, the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's
Office said.

A Sheriff's Office spokesman said two men were inside the vehicle and fled
after the crash. One of the men was caught. Jose Antonio Hernandez-Ramirez
was booked with several traffic violations, including vehicular negligent
injury, two counts of hit and run and reckless operation.

The store is located at 1201 E. Judge Perez Drive, at the intersection of
Palmisano Boulevard. It is near Chalmette High School.

One person inside the store sustained a leg injury and the store was heavily
damaged, the spokesman said.
