    I work at the Caverns and yes it happened. I was just leaving the building for the night when a car struck the building from the adjacent parking lot on 11th street. I didn’t see the actual crash but I did see the aftermath which left the hood of his car almost completely inside the building . Reportedly he backed up and hit a light pole and then drove forward straight into our kitchen. Funniest thing is the police gave him a sobriety test on the scene as soon as they arrived and determined he was completely sober? No one was in building and the driver and passenger of the car looked as if they walked away unscathed. So thankfully no serious injuries to anyone.

    No word on whether or not they were Maryland drivers?
