Car crashes into Manassas building lobby
The occupants of an office building in the heart of Manassas got quite a surprise Monday afternoon when a Toyota Camry barreled through the front doors and into the lobby, sending glass in all directions and rocking one of the building's main support beams. It was a spectacular way to make an entrance.
Fire officials said the white Camry apparently made a right turn from West Street onto Church Street, struck the rear of an SUV and then accelerated, jumping a curb and smashing into the building at 9200 Church Street. The accident, shortly after 3 p.m., led to reports of a "building collapse" at the Vanderpool, Frostick and Nishanian Building.
Fire Marshal Francis J. Teevan said the driver of the vehicle was evaluated at the scene and was not taken to a hospital. Damage to the building is estimated at $25,000.
