Call went out around 2:30pm for a vehicle into a building in the 2900 block of Richmond Highway. No injuries reported at this time. Driver apparently hit the building and left the scene.

Staff at the Verizon store said the man became belligerent over a service issue and left before hitting the building with his vehicle.

A witness said the driver was a white man driving a black sedan.

“It sounded like a bomb,” one witness said. “Boom. Then I saw him drive around the corner [northbound on Route 1].”

Code enforcement and the building inspector are at the scene after officials responded to a report of a building collapse, according to scanner traffic.
