Fortunately, no one was working Saturday. The office manager's desk was obliterated.









Apparently the driver had a seziure, crossed oncoming traffic, jumped a couple curbs, plowed down a tree, just missed a light pole and ended up in my office.








We had a big pile of merchandise sitting in the office, waiting to be returned to a vendor. I have to sort thru the rubble tomorrow to see how much is left.

Driver was unscathed.

Stay tuned for the security camera footage :thumbup:

Jesus. Do they build stuff out of sand down there?

She must have had the pedal to the metal. That is a concrete block structure.

The slab is about 12: above the parking lot. She must have ramped up over the curb.

She did hit the weakest point, under the window. It's prety much like hittingg a 4' block wall.


But, you've got some cleaning up to do.
It's a mess, for sure. I will deal with it tomorrow.

Too bad they missed the light pole, could have been an easy fix.
She barely clipped it with a tire and knocked the prefabbed base about an inch out of square.

I like how the hole is just as big as the car....reminds me of when Shaggy and Scooby run into/thru a wall and leave just the shape of their bodies.
We did that at a remodel one time. Used a sawzall to cut out the shape of someone running thru the drywall :laughing:

It is funny how the window was untouched...until the tow truck pulled it out :rolleyes:

she in the hospital?
She didn't want to go but she is at the hospital. Only seat belt bruises. Modern vehicles are pretty protective. She had to be doing 60+ to end up there.

This is a car that I keep parked on the street.

An older lady did this with a new car and walked away.

They think she fell asleep and hit the gas.

You know what's interesting, although she most likely knew she had a seizure condition and probably wasn't taking her meds, if your secretary was there and was killed I doubt the woman would have any remorse and would get away with it.

I'd be curious as to wether she was on her anti seziure medicine, what caused her attack, how she ended up going so fast. This should be treated as an investigation just as if she killed someone. Because it's highly probable someone could of been killed and this woman could strike again
