Two people were injured Saturday afternoon after being struck by a vehicle at the Goo-Goo Express Wash on Bent Creek Road in Auburn.
Business manager Adrian Davis said the driver, an elderly woman, struck two of his employees and three vehicles, including a Lexus and a BMW, while attempting to exit the car wash. The incident occurred just before 3:30 p.m.
“She came out and hit the gas,” Davis said. “The entire time we’ve been in business nothing like this has ever happened. …That’s human error. There’s nothing we can do about that.”
One of the victims suffered serious leg injuries, according to witnesses on the scene. The other individual reportedly suffered minor injuries.
Capt. Tommy Carswell of the Auburn Police Department confirmed that there was an accident at a business in the 2300 block of Bent Creek Road on Saturday afternoon. Carswell said APD received the call about the incident at 3:24 p.m.
“It’s a private property accident,” Carswell said. “Two other cars were struck, and two bystanders were struck.”
Carswell said that the two injured individuals were both employees at the business, and both were Hispanic men. Both were taken to the East Alabama Medical Center by ambulance.
“One of them had a pretty severe injury,” Carswell said.
