WAUKEGAN, Ill. (WLS) -- A Waukegan clothing store was badly damaged after a car crash Saturday night.

Two vehicles collided and ended up going through the front wall of the business, located at Ninth and Genesee streets, about 10 p.m.

The store's owner was on-site moments after the crash, surveying the damage.

"Basically, the damage, the entire front wall of my building is gone, the entire front wall, completely gone," Tasha Washington said. "So, I have a board-up service. They're here. They're doing their job. I mean I'll be down for, maybe a week, two, I don't know."
