Vehicle Crashes into O'Reilly Auto Parts -- Battle Ground (Photo) - 04/01/24

Battle Ground Police were dispatched shortly before 2:00pm on Monday, April 1st, for a vehicle accident at O’Reilly Auto Parts, in Battle Ground.  When officers arrived, they observed a single pickup truck that had collided into the west wall of the building, breaking through the exterior brick. 

Medical personnel from Fire District 3 evaluated the driver at the scene, who sustained only minor injuries.  No other injuries were reported.  Drugs and/or alcohol are not believed to have contributed to this accident.   

The City’s Building Official and Fire Marshal have inspected the damaged wall, a main structural support for the building.  The Building Official issued a closure notice until the building can be assessed by a structural engineer who will determine the full extent of the damage. 

The police investigation into this incident is still ongoing.  No additional information is available at this time.
