Car damaged on Moorhead road. Whose fault is it?

Posted: Updated:

A Dilworth man says it's time to put in end to a bumpy situation in Moorhead. The man, who did not want to be identified, says a local street is causing damage to cars daily, including his, and he wants to see it fixed. Before the fix can happen, somebody has to take responsibility for the property.

Every day cars show up at this McDonald's drive thru in Moorhead. That's what happened to one Dilworth man back in October.

"I stop here say once a year."

But once he got his food and drove away, all of a sudden,

"I took a right hand turn and the car bottomed out."

Damage was done to the front end of his car. He reported it to McDonald's management.

"There is $300 worth of damage."

McDonald's sent a letter to the person saying it's not their problem, it's the city of Moorhead's. So then the person reached out to the city of Moorhead and they're not taking blame for it either.

"This is a letter from city of Moorhead?"
"Yes. It says the city of Moorhead found no irregularities on the property."

We decided to give the street a drive our self. We ran into the same problem this person did. He just hopes somebody will take responsibility for this part of the street, so other car's don't go through the damage he's bumped into.

"It's just common sense. This should be fixed. Just lay some asphalt down and fix it."

McDonald's stands by it's statement, that it's not their responsibility because the problem exists after the curb.

The city of Moorhead says the street was there first and McDonald's was constructed too high.
The city says there's no way it can reconstruct an entire street. It's recommending that McDonalds modify their parking lot.
