SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A car crashed into an office building in downtown Spartanburg late Thursday morning.
The crash happened shortly after 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Magnolia Street and West St. John Street, according to the Spartanburg Police Department.
Two cars were involved in the crash. Police said both drivers said they had a green light at the intersection.
One car crashed into the office building at 101 W. St. John Street.
The driver of the vehicle which hit the building was taken to the hospital to be checked but there were no major injuries, Spartanburg Police said.
“Two cars hit and one came up through and went into two of our office spaces in there but, praise God, both were vacant.” said Whitney Goodwin, director of property management at the building.
Goodwin said as soon as it happened her phone started ringing.
“They said a car just went through the building and I said I’m three minutes away.” Goodwin said.
Goodwin tells us just a month ago workers who occupied the space moved to a different floor. She said she is thankful everyone is OK and they will now begin cleanup.
“First, we are going to board it up, clean outside and inside and have our landscapers come out,” Goodwin said. “Then we have Kapasi glass to fix the windows.”
Spartanburg Police said there was no surveillance video and there were no witnesses at the scene.
