A driver was injured when her vehicle crashed into an automobile dealership along Route 100 in Colebrookdale Township early Tuesday, police said.

The crash happened shortly after 6 a.m. at Quigley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 565 N. Route 100, according to Colebrookdale police.

The female driver, whose name wasn't available, suffered unspecified injuries and was taken by ambulance to Lehigh Valley Hospital, near Allentown.

Information on her medical condition could not be obtained from the hospital.

Police are continuing to investigate.

Brett Hoffman, the dealership’s sales manager, said the vehicle crashed through the door on the south side of the showroom. Besides broken windows, the dealership’s vehicle that is used to shuttle customers who drop off their vehicles for service was heavily damaged, and two trucks — a pre-owned model parked in front of the dealership and a 2020 model on display in the showroom — sustained lesser damage.

The crash happened the morning after Quigley reopened its service and parts department, which had been closed since April 6 because of Gov. Tom Wolf’s shelter-in-place order, Hoffman said.

Hoffman was awakened by a call for a motion detector alarm just after 6, and as he pulled up to the dealership he saw the lights of several emergency vehicles and realized a long day was in store.

Moyers Services Group Inc., Souderton, shored up the dealership early Tuesday.

The crash’s affect on the sales operation is minimal.

Under the governor’s orders, dealerships can permit only a single customer at a time in showrooms and test rides are not allowed, Hoffman said. Sales themselves must be done online.
