Update, Tuesday, 6:00 pm: “It appears that the vehicle was left in neutral and simply rolled out of its space,” DPS Chief Jay Gruber said. “The vehicle was unoccupied when the accident occurred. There was nobody driving it. There was no foul play. It wasn’t intentional. At this point in time, we don’t anticipate anybody getting any tickets or anything like that.”

The crash ended up damaging University property in the accident. “It’ll be referred to our office of risk management, which does all our insurance claims to work it out with the car insurance company,” Gruber said.

Gruber did not have information at hand to say whose car it was.

Original post: At approximately 11 p.m. tonight, a car crash was reported in the parking lot behind Wisey’s. It appeared that there were no injuries, and Wisey’s continued to operate as usual until closing time. A tow truck was called to the scene, but the car remains firmly lodged in the fence.

Both DPS and MPD were present at the scene, but DPS and Wisey’s staff declined to comment.  Vox will keep you posted with updates as the story develops.
