Carefully worded news item: "a commercial building". Why not say it was the OneAZ credit union? And, "left the roadway". More like left the parking lot and drove over several feet of sidewalk before crashing through the front door. Will we see any VI news follow-up to the "circumstances" that led to this crash?
