Traffic in the downtown core slowed to a halt today after a car leaving Hanson Memorial Parking Garage sped up and crashed into the wall of the building across the road.The accident occurred this afternoon. The male driver, the only person in the vehicle, was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
"I think maybe he tried to break, and then he hit the accelerator and he just shot right across the street," Harpell said.
Police arrived on the scene quickly, and secured the area. City engineers are currently investigating the struck building at 166 Wellington to ensure it is structurally sound.
