SUV Crashes Into Local Business

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Emergency crews responded to a crash involving a car and business Tuesday afternoon.

Officials said the crash happened at 4114 Shipyard Boulevard around noon. A dark SUV crashed into the front of the Intracoastal Internal Medicine office. Police on scene said vehicle failure could have caused the crash, but they are still investigating.

Police said an 85-year-old man was dropping off his wife at the office when the incident happened.

No injuries were reported. Police said no charges are expected.

It’s not the first time this doctor’s office has been hit.

On Feb. 1, 2011, a Honda Accord crashed into Intracoastal Internal Medicine. At the time, investigators said the driver had a leg brace that got caught on the accelerator. The crash took out the office’s front door. The man was not seriously hurt, but was taken to the hospital.
