River Valley Veterinary Hospital expanded their business and relocated to Springdale at 1046 Pittsburgh Street a few years ago.  Shortly after the relocation, a vehicle driving down Pittsburgh Street slammed into the side of the building and went through one of the exam rooms.  

Early this morning, another driver sheared the bed off his truck on a telephone pole and went straight through the front glass doors severely damaging the lobby/office area of the building.

While I am sure they have insurance for this type damage, the auto insurance for the liable party would be responsible.  However, if there is not enough Property Damage coverage on the auto policy, the business insurance does not get reimbursed.  That is when rates increase, for doing nothing wrong but having a thriving business in the community. 

The location of the building is on a curve in the road that has just a sidewalk between the building and the roadway.  Due to the narrow sidewalk between the road and front door, there is a risk of people being devastatingly injured who might have been in the lobby, including staff, animals, clients and their children.

River Valley Veterinary Hospital needs protection from out of control vehicles (due to weather/snow or other circumstance) whether it is a cement barrier or cement pillars along the curb.

The town/state need to step up and help one of the few business left.  A business that provides medical care for countless fur-babies each week.  We (hundreds of us) rely on these doctors and their staff on a regular basis.  Not having them available due to damage like this, impacts every one of us.

The last thing Springdale wants is for another business to leave the community.
