Vehicle Crashes Into Dry Cleaning Business

Police responded to a wild scene on Friday morning after an SUV ran into a Lexington business.

It happened a few minutes after 10:00 at Newport Cleaners off Richmond Road. That's near the Squires Road intersection.

The owner says a customer was trying to park in front of the store and accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake. The vehicle crashed into the building.

An employee in the store at the time wash shaken up but was not hurt. The driver of the SUV was also uninjured.

There wasn't much damage to the vehicle, but there was extensive damage done to the building and now workers have a big mess to clean up.

Despite the mess, Newport Cleaners remained open on Friday.
