There was another incident involving a car crashing into a local business in the City of West Hollywood today. This time a car plummeted into VCA Miller-Robertson Animal Hospital located at 8807 Melrose Avenue, at roughly 10 a.m. today.
According to a source, an employee at Maxfield, located next door, accidentally pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal and slammed into the neighboring business. The crash appears minor from the outside of the building, but the accident caused some structural damage inside the animal hospital, that will require major repairs. No one was injured according to staff at VCA. They are open for business while repairs are being made.
This is the third car crash reported this week that involves a car crashing into a local business.
