Abacus still counting damage after car crashes through building

Alicia LeGrand-Riniker
NewsTribune Reporter

Teresa A Case, 44, of 305 Nelson Ave. Spring Valley caused severe damage to the Abacus Tax Service building located at 1 Les Buzz Way, Spring Valley when she drove her vehicle through the back half of the business at 12:45 p.m. Sunday, Spring Valley police said.

Case said she was slowing down to park at the Subway across the street from Abacus when her accelerator stuck and her vehicle hopped the curb, crossed Lawrence Street and crashed through the garage bay door and wall of the back left side of Abacus.

The report said Case’s vehicle continued to travel through the building and into the interior of the back half of the right side of the building. No tickets were issued and no injuries were reported, police said.

Vicki Claggett, manager at Abacus, said they cannot go into that half of the building because they are afraid the structure could collapse.

She said they have not received estimates for the damage yet but believes it will be in the $10,000 to $20,000 range and was thankful no one was hurt.
