Demolition Derby Anyone? 4-Car Crash at Ken's Kars

Driver Slams His Car Into Parked Vehicles in Ken's Kars Car Lot June 2010

Driver Slams His Car Into Parked Vehicles in Ken's Kars Car Lot

Who says there is never any excitement in Dayton Ohio! Just come to Ken's Kars car lot to see the action. Recently, a driver was in a high-speed chase by a Five Rivers Metro Parks officer and lost control of his vehicle and ran into four cars parked in our car lot. We estimate the damage to be between $15,000 - $20,000.

Watch this exciting video of the car crash (sorry for the short 30-second ad in the beginning) by News Center 7 reporter Jill Del Greco and see our very own Ken Smiley interviewed for this top story.
