    Default Car Crashes into Apple Store in Chicago


    The Apple Store in Lincoln Park, Chicago was the site of an automobile accident that took place on Sunday night. A car smashed through the outlet’s glass façade and straight into a wall of accessories, leaving one person with minor injuries while damaging the store quite a bit. According to a report from The Verge, it was a Lincoln Town Car (ironically) that hopped a curb and ended up travelling far enough to break through the Apple Store’s glass doors.

    Pictures taken on-scene by some of the Twitter users at the site reveal damage to the interior of the store, including damage to a display table filled with MacBooks, accessory shelving and a flat-screen window display being twisted 180 degrees from its original position after being clipped by the car.

    There hasn’t been any information regarding how the accident occurred in the first place, but it does seem like an unintentional incident unlike the “smash and grab” burglary that took place in an Apple Store in California last year. Apple has yet to release a statement regarding the accident.

    I seem to be missing the irony here, anyone care to fill me in?

    You're not missing anything. Whoever wrote this summary clearly has no idea what "irony" actually means.
