    I’m just thankful the Wings are safe. This was almost a real tragedy.

    Imagine how much fun that would have been if it was still an Esso station? At least no one was hurt.

    Isn’t this the same store that had its opening delayed because a car or truck had crashed through its front windows?

  4. In replay to SomMom – it is the very same. It happened on New Years Day 2006 and I had to delay opening.

    I remember working at this location when it was West Coast Video. I was employed there for approximatley 2 years and seen 2 cars make a drive-thru at the video store.

    I wonder if drivers are speeding through the green light at Somerville Ave and not realizing that they’re supposed to turn right or left — the road does not continue straight ahead. (Unless you hit a building, that is.)

    Maybe the city should post a really prominent sign there: WARNING, Road Ends.

  8. A. Moore says:

    There are places where I could see one might make a mistake. But not here. It’s either car or human malfunction.

    SomMom, great idea, but while they are reading the sign they will probably hit the building again.

    I was driving by as it happened and it look as if the person was trying to park and accidentally pressed the gas rather than the break and they rolled over the parking block into the building. It’s wasn’t at a very high speed. I’m sure if you were in the store it seemed like it though!
