Man drives truck through two storefronts

A bit of potentially careless driving left two storefronts in the Arbor Square Plaza Shopping Center in Ann Arbor, Mich. in desperate need of repair. A passenger in the truck was also injured in the crash.

The UPS Story and Jafferson Computers was significantly damage after a man in his 50s drove his dark red 1989 Dodge Ram through their storefronts. The truck broke through the all-glass front of the UPS Store and proceeded to plow into an interior wall shared with Jafferson Computers, where it came to rest.

Investigators estimated the total damage at $75,000. Police cited the man for careless driving, but they did not file additional charges as they continue to investigate the crash.

An initial investigation indicates that the driver was traveling southbound on Carpenter Road when he attempted to make a sudden turn. The maneuver sent him over a berm that surrounds the shopping complex. Along the way, the truck careened through bushes before colliding into the storefronts.

The crash was also caught on a surveillance video by a camera inside Jafferson Computers. Fortunately, both stores were empty at the time of the 8:30 a.m. incident, which was a half hour before the UPS Store opens its doors on Sundays.

The truck set off a motion sensor in Jafferson Computers after slamming into the interior wall, setting off the alarm system. The UPS Store remained open despite the significant damage, as did Jafferson Computers.
