An early morning accident at a Texas Cadillac dealership sent three women to the hospital and sent $500,000 in Cadillacs up in flames.

It happened at 1:45 AM when the driver of the SUV hit a sedan which pushed it into a pole causing it to catch fire. That fire quickly spread, completely destroying five new Cadillacs in the dealership lot and damaging several others.

Tom Peacock Cadillac Manager, Steve Hainline, estimates that the tally for the total vehicle and property damage will amount to as much as $750,000. Now they just have to figure out who to blame, as both of the women who were in the SUV are claiming that they weren’t behind the wheel.

Police are still investigating the accident and have yet to determine who was actually driving at the time of the crash.
