A U-Haul self-storage facility in Binghamton, New York, was damaged last week after a car crashed through the fence and slammed into one of its buildings. The incident happened at 262 Front St. at about 1:30 a.m. on Friday. Three 8-by-10-foot units were affected, according to the source.
A woman who lives across the street told investigators she heard a loud noise. When she looked outside, she spotted a silver or gray car next to the building. The male driver looked underneath the vehicle for a few minutes, then got back into the car and drove away. The vehicle had front-end damage, she said.
Police later found the car and driver, who was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. Though the accident is under investigation, it’s unclear whether files will be charged in connection with the crash.
Established in 1945 and based in Phoenix, U-Haul owns and manages more than 72 million square feet of storage space nationwide.
