Man Crashes SUV Through Local Building.

This is huge news, a man crashed into a building right in the middle of town at over 75 mph. It is probably hard to understand it's importance if you are unfamiliar to Gig Harbor, but I've walked past that building and driven down that road thousands of times. The building used to be a restaurant, but the owners sold it and it became a fitness gym. It's right at the heart of Gig Harbor, basically.

GIG HARBOR, Wash. - An SUV crashed into the 1-2-3 Fit gym at Pioneer Way and Harborview Drive early Wednesday, killing the driver.

Witnesses said the driver was traveling at about 75 mph when the vehicle crashed into the building at about 6:30 a.m.

The SUV came to rest on a desk.

The 26-year-old driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was killed instantly.

Four or five people on exercise equipment narrowly escaped injury. Gym member Ryan Ryan was doing push-ups at the time of the crash.

"The odd part about this is there was no attempt to miss the building, no attempt to brake, and the vehicle speed was three-four times the speed limit," said Ed Troyer of the Pierce County Sheriff's Dept.

I know it's a few days old. I was unable to post a topic earlier because of homework.

"i drink away the pain, like i was an alcoholic, an crash into a tree, like my name was jaksonpolic, oh liven up the seas till i cant get no liva, an rap for spots an princess an driva.........." so on, it was pretty tight, but it had like 20 swear words in it, so i wont bother posting a link, or recite the whole song..............

:O Wow. I think I heard about that. I would have been scared soooo bad if I had been there when that happened. It seems like people haven't been driving very well lately... Some guy crashed his car into a tree and I think another person hit someone with their car, another guy drove his car into a ditch, and that was only in the past two weeks.

And because of all this crazy driving, the license age has moved from sixteen to seventeen. :(
wtf? damn, what they should do is just outlaw drinking to everyone who owns a license and revoke offender's licenses

Do you know what happened the last time they banned drinking?

And what did that cause?

The beginning of organized crime!
Um... I guess, but what did the bootlegged alcohol cause?

No, Splint's been correct on every question so far. Prohibition was the seed that started mobsters, and organized crime..
