Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:

 

A destroyed garage is what is left from a wild crash that sent two men to the hospital Monday morning

"It must have been traveling really fast," says Troy Brownlee, Maintenance at Valley Rental.

Maintenance workers for Valley Rental can't believe the damage.

"I've seen garages wrecked before but nothing like this," says Brownlee.
 
But this garage isn't the only thing ruined.

Rusty Pithan's pick up's drivers side window broken.

"It's kind of shocking," says Pithan.

The impact to the garage caused loose pebbles to fly damaging cars in the parking lot.

Pithan has already made the call in to his insurance.

"This is totaled," says Brownlee.

And for these maintenance workers, they are left cleaning up a mess they wish never happened.

"It sounded like an explosion. We know a few people called 911."

Investigators say the men in the car, had significant injuries but are expected to live.
The driver will likely face reckless driving charges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fargo Police say two men went to the hospital with "significant" injuries after the car they were in lost control and smashed into a wall and garage early Monday morning.

Several people called 911 to report the crash just before 3:30 am.

It happened at an apartment complex at 3531 30th avenue south in Fargo, that's on the frontage road on the east side of I-29.

Investigators say the car was headed north at a high rate of speed when the driver missed a curve and lost control.

The car hit a pole, a sign, smashed through a planter, hit a brick wall, and then went airborne, crashing into and destroying a garage stall.

Police say the men in the car haven't been interviewed yet because they were rushed to the hospital, but it's likely at least the driver will be facing reckless driving charges.

The car they were in was totaled and damage to the complex is being called "extensive."  According to investigators several cars and windows were even hit by flying bricks.
