SUV Crashes Into Newport Bridal Shop
Wed 06-05-2015

A Newport bridal shop was forced to close when an SUV crashed through the store front.

Police are looking for the driver who witnesses said caused the crash at 225 Spring St.

"It's a very unfortunate accident for the lady who works very hard in that store," said Rocky Botelho, who owns the Franklin Spa restaurant across the street.

The owner said Monday that she managed to get all the dresses out of the store and that she is working hard to honor every commitment to her bridal customers, even though her home base has been destroyed.

"The good news is no one was hurt. It was just an accident. It could have been prevented," Botelho said. "It was unfortunate to come in at quarter of 5 on a Sunday morning and see the damage."

The shop's owner said what's even worse is that she had just finished renovating her storefront. Now she has to find a temporary spot to relocate and then decide what to do.
