NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Multiple vehicles have been damaged after a car crashed into a dealership in Northwest Miami-Dade.
Surveillance footage captured the moment a car, traveling at a high rate of speed, crashed into America Auto Wholesale Inc., at Northwest 27th Avenue and 98th Street, at approximately 5:10 a.m., Tuesday.
Moments later, a woman could be seen walking away from the scene and jumping over the fence to the business.
Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue crews responded to the business shortly after.
Firefighters could be seen pulling a man out of the vehicle through the passenger side window.
He was transported to North Shore Medical Center in stable condition.
“He flew over the fence, and he landed on the top of the cars in the lot,” said Hector Borroto, the dealership owner’s father. “The good thing about this was it was during the night. During the day, it was going to be really worse because of the traffic on 27th and the people walking around and the people on the lot.”
7SkyForce HD hovered above the scene where several vehicles in the parking lot could be seen crashed into one another.
Borroto said seven vehicles were damaged from the crash.
“Most of the cars are a total loss,” said Borroto. “It’s difficult, difficult for us. It’s a difficult time, especially with the coronavirus going on, this crisis. This is a family business, and we try to keep the cars in good shape. We’re trying to build the business, and you know, this is sad. It’s sad for us. It’s not a good day for us, not today.”
It remains unclear what caused the crash or if the driver will be cited or face charges.
Crews have since repaired the fence surrounding the business.
The business owner is trying to figure out whether or not his insurance will cover the damages.
