File this one under "strange but true."

A car turning onto New Meadow Road from County Road on Tuesday, May 19, was struck by a lemonade stand.

According to police, a woman and her child had set up the small lemonade stand (and were careful to follow social distancing and other current restrictions). At about 12:25 p.m., a wind gust blew the lemonade stand into the side of a vehicle as it turned from County Road onto New Meadow.

Police said the driver of the vehicle complained of damage to his car during the incident.

The owner of the lemonade stand agreed to pay for any damages.
