According to a Long Beach store owner, car crashes at the intersection of Willow Street and Magnolia Avenue happen monthly.
LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- An owner of an antique store in Long Beach is demanding more action by the city after two cars crashed into her store in the past month - the most recent being over the weekend.
Co-owner Emily Yep says car crashes at the intersection of Willow Street and Magnolia Avenue happen monthly. The damage caused has cost them thousands of dollars.
One crash that happened over the Fourth of July weekend was captured on surveillance video and showed a car smash into the store window. The front store window has been boarded up since the crash.
"I'm fearful every day somebody is going to be hurt," Yep said.
On Saturday, another crash careened a car into the store's front door.
Yep said she has been reaching out to the city for help since 2017 but hasn't heard back. But after learning about her struggle the owner of 1-800-Bollards has offered to assist.
"He's even offered to provide us with all the bollards we need if we can just get the city to approve them being installed and get them installed," Yep said.
When asked about the troubling intersection, the Long Beach Public Works Department provided this statement:
"The City of Long Beach has been made aware of the traffic and safety concerns at the intersection of Willow Street and Magnolia Ave. The City is designing traffic improvements in the area and is currently working on temporary safety measures."
A GoFundMe page has been established to help the business.
