Police tape hangs on the broken gate of the St. Albans Parking Garage. Damages were caused by a vehicle trying to sneak through the exit as the gate lowered for the vehicle in front of it, according to police.

ST. ALBANS CITY — The Hampton Lane exit gate of the St. Albans Parking Garage was broken in an accident Tuesday night.

A vehicle tried to sneak under the bar as it opened for the vehicle in front of it around 8:20 p.m. Sept. 21, which caused the vehicle to snap off the gate, according to a police spokesperson. 

Vehicles can still use the parking garage as the exit on Franklin Street is still operational.

No charges were filed.
