RADCLIFF, KY (WAVE) - Stephen Montgomery was finishing up dinner when he got a call from Radcliff police.
"'There's uh been an accident,'" Montgomery said, impersonating the officer. "'It was kind of off Dixie and they kind of hit a lot of cars.' Ok, how many? 'It's pretty bad.'"
More than a dozen cars were destroyed in a wreck where police said a driver hit a curb trying to pass someone, and then bounced up onto cars lining the side of the road at the Big M Chevy dealership.
"It's been a rough day," Montgomery said.
Police Chief Jeffery Cross said it's not a crime, just bad driving.
"It's quite unusual," Cross said. "No suspicion of driving under the influence. Nothing reckless."
"7 Chevrolet Cruzes, five Chevrolet Malibus, two Impalas and a Sonic," Montgomery counted, going over the losses.
The anger and frustration gave way to laughter.
"There's been a lot of comedy about it," he said.
Drivers stared and shouted and even customers asked what happened.
"They said, 'Who did you piss off?!,'" Montgomery said laughing. "What's your ex-girlfriend look like?"
Insurance will cover the damage.
"In a lot of ways, we're kind of lucky it was just cars that I can replace," Montgomery said
"I've been doing this 25 years, and I don't think I've worked one (a crash) like that," Cross said. "You can never pay too close attention to the road while you're driving."
