Car crashes into Raleigh business

Posted February 20, 2015

— A car crashed into a Raleigh business on Chapel Hill Road Friday evening, authorities said. 

Witnesses said they were in their office next door when they heard a loud sound just after 5 p.m.

"We just heard a loud screech and a crash," said Samantha Gaffer. "I looked outside and saw a car inside the building."

According to authorities, the car crashed into a business called A Small Miracle, a company that works with children and adults with autism and other special needs and their families. 

The driver of the car walked away from the scene unharmed, but a building inspector deemed the building unsafe. 

"Until a structural engineer comes in and assesses the building, and directs the contractor how to shore the building, it's unsafe to occupy, unsafe to work in," said Matthew Donaldson with the Cary Fire Department. 

Even though the building are connected, Donaldson says that other nearby businesses are not affected by the damage. 

Gaffer and her colleague, Sandy Lindt said they are just relieved no one was hurt. 

No charges have been filed in the crash.
