HOUSTON (AP) - A vehicle involved in a traffic accident careered into a Houston-area Cadillac dealership and struck a row of Escalades, triggering a fire that destroyed six of the pricey SUVs.

The general manager of the dealership, Steven Hainline (hay-LINE’), says the loss of the SUVs amounts to about $700,000.

He says the episode began early Tuesday morning when two vehicles collided on the Interstate 45 frontage road just north of Houston. A Toyota Scion left the road, traveled through fencing and became wedged among three Escalades. The Scion then caught fire and the flames spread to the SUVs.

Authorities say the two motorists involved in the initial wreck suffered injuries not considered life-threatening.

Hainline says the fire made “for a really long day.”
