Elderly Woman Crashes Car Through Oregon Self-Storage Unit


An elderly woman drove a car straight through a self-storage unit last Thursday at Umpqua Mini Storage in Roseburg, Ore.

Witnesses told the source the woman had stopped outside of a drive-up unit at the facility on Weyerhaeuser Drive just before noon, and for an unknown reason drove completely through the unit. Her car was recovered in a ditch behind the facility. An ambulance was dispatched to the scene, and EMTs treated and released the woman on site.

The cost of damage to the facility is unknown. The source took several photos of the damaged car and unit, available for viewing at

Umpqua Mini Storage is a standalone facility with unit sizes ranging from 5-by-10 to 10-by-30. It is very near Interstate 5 in south Central Oregon.
