LAWRENCEVILLE — A Father’s Day crash at Sugarloaf Mills Mall did not result in any injuries, but did leave a hole in the wall near a book store.
Firefighters responded on June 16, 2019 at 6:47pm to a report of a vehicle that crashed through a wall at the mall.
Crews arrived to find a red sedan that went half way into the building near the Books-A-Million.
Firefighters say the vehicle reportedly jumped the curb and impacted a veneer wall adjacent to a service door and storage area at the corner of the building.
The driver of the vehicle was not hurt and was talking with police at the scene.
According to the fire department’s Technical Rescue Team, there were no loadbearing walls affected and no structural integrity issues.
“There were no injuries reported inside the busy mall, which was open at the time of the incident,” Gwinnett County Fire Department spokesman Tommy Rutledge said in a statement.
The vehicle was removed from the building at 7:26 p.m. and the scene was turned over to Gwinnett County Police for accident report handling.
