Metro bus plows through Advantage BMW in Houston

Please dont flame me if this is a repost - happened 3 hours ago:

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?se...cal&id=6214905

It happened around 8:30am on San Jacinto at Hadley. Authorities say it appears the METRO bus driver left the roadway and plowed into the Advantage BMW lot parking lot full of vehicles. Around 15 vehicles sustained heavy damage.
There were at least six ambulances on the scene. Several people were taken to the hospital with injuries.

It's my dealer too, and I live about 4 blocks away. Called my advisor to make sure everyone was ok, and he said it's about $1Mil worth of damage to new and employee cars Customer cars are kept on the other side of the street in two lots one for cars to be worked on, and one for finished cars for the valets to pickup cars. On my way home I got to see the carnage. Dozens of cars were in the customer car pickup lot with severe damage. That's going to be one heck of an accident claim. $1Mil of damage, plus 16 people going to the hospital.....
