An Unexpected Visitor After Hours

Posted by Tom Hudson | Mar 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

It could have been a lot worse.  On the evening of March 29, after we had closed the office for the day, we had unexpected company. 

A Mustang coupe, headed southbound on rain-slick U.S. 41, made a slight detour--through the front of our building. The driver lost control, and the car went airborne after striking a curb, taking out a fire hydrant and a stop sign before caving in the front door, wall, and picture window of our office.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the wreck, but we can't say as much for the phone, desk and computer in our front office.  Had the crash happened an hour earlier, it might have been tragic.  

All's well that ends well, and this one ends with another first for the Hudson Law Office--First Law Office in Florida with a Drive-Thru Window! (It worked for Wendy's).
