Mercedes Smashes Into Brown Collision Center

December 3, 2012

The Brown Collision Center in Albemarle County is dealing with a different kind of collision after a car smashed into the building.

Structural engineers inspected the building and deem it safe.

Three people, all employees of the business, were taken to University of Virginia Medical Center for minor injuries after a red Mercedes crashed through a doorway and into a wall. Officials say the driver was bringing her car in to be serviced.

"There's a hose that opens the building when the tires roll over it," said Capt. Ed Fisher with Albemarle County Fire and Rescue. "That opened the door up and that sort of confused the driver."

Authorities believe the driver then hit the gas, sending the car through a door and into a wall inside.
