Car Crashes into Huntington Business, Leaves Gaping Hole

More Video...

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A two-car crash Wednesday afternoon sent one of the cars through the walls of a massage therapy office near the intersection of 6th Avenue and 7th Street.

At least one person was taken to the hospital after the crash, which left a gaping hole in the business. It happened about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Suzanne Ellis, who was inside the business, said she heard the original crash and ran outside to see what was going on.

"And so it looked like it was coming this direction and I didn't know where," Ellis said. "My car was parked out front. I thought it was going to hit my car, so I closed the door and started moving away from the door because I didn't know where it was going to come."

She headed toward the back of the business to get away, but only made it a few steps. That's when the car went crashing through the wall, sending her to the ground.

"You could hear everything crashing," Ellis said. "She has a lot of glass pieces on that wall; everything was crashing and falling."

When she got up and realized that she and the other woman were alright, all they could do was give each other a hug -- thankful they were both still alive.
