Valet Driver Crashes SUV Into The Newport Marriott

One of the largest buildings in the city, the Newport Marriott hotel is hard to miss…and a Ford Expedition didn’t.

In the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Memorial Day Holiday weekend, things got really exciting at the Newport Marriott when a valet driver lost control of the black Ford Expedition he’d been entrusted with and reversed through a glass door frame. No one was injured though the door frame will need replacement and the vehicle received minor damage.

As you can see, between the door and the Expedition’s taillight, there’s a lot of broken glass.

As you can see from the top of the frame, the damage to the hotel is a bit more than just some broken glass. The whole door frame will need to be replaced.

Not having a “Someone crashed into the building so please use the other door” sign available, the hotel staff were forced to make do with the sign and caution tape they had available.

Looks like the hotel’s insurance company will be busy, a valet driver should probably be making sure his resume is up to date, a Massachusetts resident will be able to tell their friends “You won’t believe what happened to my Expedition in Newport this weekend” and Newport Glass has a job to do.
