Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy Wagner investigated a vehicle vs. building crash last night at the Dollar General Store on Carpenter Dam Road at the Rockport Lane Intersection.
Evidence at the scene showed that a white car hit the front of the building head-on. Minor damage to some brick work on the building was visible. The car suffered minor damage and was driven away from the scene.
Lake Hamilton Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted as needed. LHFD Fire Chief Doug Davey said that the only damage to the building was to the cosmetic brick work covering the front wall of the store. He had LHFD Fire Marshall Bill Heck report to the scene to inspect the damage as a precaution. Fire Marshall Heck found no evidence of structural damage and recommended that the store remain open for business.
No injury was reported.
