Accident causes $200,000 worth of damage at local dealership

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A truck wrecked into a Waco car dealership while going around 90 miles per hour and caused an estimated $200,000 worth of damage to the dealership.

The crash happened at the Greg May Honda dealership on Hwy 6 around 11 a.m. Friday morning.

Officers say a truck was traveling too fast for conditions and left the roadway. The truck went down the embankment, went airborne and crashed into the car lot.

"It was surreal, it was absolutely surreal. I mean the sign from the top down, the signs crumbling, pieces flying everywhere, cars moving. I mean flying, they're on their side, they're upside down, light posts taken out it was unbelievable," Honda salesperson Dalton Turner said.

The dealership estimates nearly $200,000 worth of damage was done. Three vehicles were totaled, including two new Accords, and the accident caused damage to the dealership sign.

The dealership didn't have power at the time of the crash and were turning away customers throughout the morning.

"Just a blessing that the power was out even though we were inconvenienced this morning. I think it possibly saved a few lives today," owner Greg May said.

Only the driver of the truck was injured and he was taken to Hillcrest and treated for minor injuries.
