Spokane, WA : SUV crashed into optical building in central Spokane on Thursday afternoon, January 8, 2015
Police say one man was sent to a hospital to be evaluated after an SUV crashed through an optical building Thursday afternoon in Spokane.
The Spokesman-Review reports that the vehicle hit the southeast corner of a building that houses Stahl Optical and Prosser Dentistry, driving into Stahl's lab. A lab worker was trapped until workers were able to free him.
Police Officer Brad Moon said the lab worker was taken to a hospital as a precaution but did not seem to have significant injuries.
The SUV driver told police he swerved to avoid a car ahead of him that had stopped to make a turn. The driver was unhurt.
An initial inspection of the building indicated it was sound.
