NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida business is devastated by an out of control tow truck.
Police said the driver of the tow truck fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a kitchen and bath store Thursday along Northeast 111th Street and Biscayne Boulevard.
The accident caused about $100,000 worth of damage. "This is a catastrophe for our business it really couldn't be any worse," said Simone Mayer, owner of Real.life.Basic. "You hope that this will never happen, but really it could have been so much worse. As bad as it is, it could've been worse."
The tow truck driver was arrested on an existing traffic violation.
The business was deemed unsafe and has since been shut down.
