SUV crashes into Laguna gallery

A 26-year-old San Diego woman crashed a Nissan X-Terra through the front of the Diane and Michael Gallery at 10 p.m. Friday, Laguna Beach police said.

No one was injured though there were pedestrians near the gallery at 537 S. Coast Hwy., Sgt. Tim Kleiser wrote in an email.

“She was traveling south on South Coast Highway in the No. 2 lane and struck a parked car and veered to the right, colliding into the business,” Kleiser said.

Police are still investigating, but said alcohol and/or drugs were not a factor.


A large glass window was broken and the building received added structural damage, though Kleiser didn’t provide an estimated cost.
