The driver of a passenger van plowed through a wall at a CubeSmart self-storage facility in Mesa, Ariz., on Tuesday morning, damaging five units. The unidentified male driver may have fallen asleep before veering across traffic, sideswiping another vehicle, jumping a curb and then hitting the storage building, according to the source.
No injuries were reported. The driver said he woke up after the vehicle had entered the storage building at 3026 S. Country Club Drive. It’s not clear if the man was alone in the vehicle. Video news footage showed a large hole in a cinder-block wall with unit contents visible from the street.
The driver was ticketed for causing an accident and driving without a license, according to the source.
CubeSmart is a publicly traded self-storage real estate investment trust. The company owns or manages 629 self-storage facilities across the United States. Its operating portfolio comprises 42 million square feet.
