LAPEER, MICH (WNEM) -

Not much is left to do at LA Auto Sales in Lapeer except piece their showroom back together after a driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the dealership last week.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. last Wednesday at 48 W. Genesee St.

Photos of the scene show the aftermath of the crash and how the showroom sits today. Flip through our slideshow to see all the damage.

The crash happened overnight last Wednesday when an Imlay City man went into the dealership showroom and hit a 2003 Mercedes sedan on display. Once the cars were pulled out of the showroom and the glass was swept up, the entry point was boarded up.

A representative of the dealership said the driver who plowed into the showroom was tested for alcohol at the scene and he blew a .004. Legally drunk in Michigan is .08. Police let the man go and no charges have been filed.

Both vehicles are considered total losses.
