SUV Crashes into a Building in Northeast Portland

Posted on behalf of RizkLaw on Feb 01, 2022 in Auto Accident

Early February 2022, an SUV smashed into a minivan and rebounded into the front of Capitol Bar on Northeast 15th Avenue and Broadway. Luckily, no one was injured or in the building at the time of the accident. However, the inflicted damage on the building will possibly need months until it’s ready to reopen. 

Many in the community are upset by losing a popular bar and restaurant in Northeast Portland. Co-owner Kevin McDowell and his partner Dessiree Guy discuss that the repairs will take months and the uncertainty for staff members is concerning. When an accident occurs and causes you to suffer lost wages or income, talk with an experienced car accident lawyer about your best legal options.
