A driver in Spokane Valley crashed through the brick sign of Dishman Dodge, doing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to the sign and more than 20 vehicles parked in the lot.
The driver, who is 20, reportedly hit the sign at a high rate of speed, completely flattening it and causing approximately $50,000 to $60,000 in damage to the sign alone.
"It will be a mess. Take a while to clean up," Tom Maine with Dishman Dodge said.
The car lot was filled with shiny, beautiful, brand new cars Monday evening with the dealership closed. When it opened this morning the situation had changed dramatically.
?We did a count this morning and we have over 20 vehicles that have damage to them so it will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage by the time it all gets totaled up," Maine said.
Maine's morning started off with an unsettling text message telling there was an accident at the dealership.
?Thankfully the person that was driving wasn't injured severely so that's the most important thing. I mean we can work through the damage and stuff,? he said.
