Driver Crashes into Building on Biltmore Avenue in Ashville, North Carolina (NC)

August 12, 2020

ASHVILLE, NC- writes that a car crashed into a building in the evening this week in Ashville. Reports do not indicate the cause of the collision, but state that one person sustained injuries in the wreck. The victim is expected to survive those injuries.*

The structure of the building remained stable following the collision. However, the car was still stuck inside at the time, and responders stated that they would have to recheck the structural integrity after the car was taken out of the wall. 

The images from the scene show a black car being pulled out of the window in front of a brick building. 

Car into building crashes takes place more often than people would like to believe. The prevalence of such dramatic collisions is frightening as they seem to indicate that pedestrians face risks from motor vehicles at nearly all times. In fact, these types of wrecks kill about 500 people in the United States annually and injure many more. 

Cars collide with structures across the nation about 60 times every day. The cause of most of these wrecks is simply driver errors. While the results of a car into building incident may appear dramatic, the cause is frighteningly mundane. In fact, many are the result of a driver who hits the gas pedal when he or she intended to strike the brakes. Other operator errors and DUIs lead to many of these incidents. Medical emergencies and car crashes each cause around one in ten cars into building wrecks. 

Retail businesses tend to be the most commonly struck commercial space, followed by restaurants, commercial buildings, offices, and then convenience stores.
