Car smashes ballpark box office

By Washington Post editors

A car crashed into a box office of Virginia's minor league baseball team the Salem Red Sox on Sunday morning, the Roanoke Times reports.

Salem police said the driver of the 1998 Toyota Avalon lost control while making a turn in the parking lot and struck a brick building. Officials responded about 10:30 a.m. and arrived at Taliaferro Way to find the two occupants of the car sitting outside it, said Lt. T. Coe of the Salem Fire and EMS Department. Neither had injuries, Coe said. Alcohol was not believed to have been involved in the crash.

The Avalon was buried to its rear wheels in the box office, which is north of the ballpark's main entrance. A tow truck crew had extracted the car by 11:20 a.m. A city building official condemned the structure.
