In a chain reaction, five vintage vehicles were damaged after a truck collided with them during the Woody's Pub's Show and Shine in Coquitlam in July 10, 2022.

Years of restoration went down the drain for some Coquitlam classic car owners this past weekend.

RCMP confirm to the Tri-City News a collision took place at Woody's Pub and Liquor Store (935 Brunette Ave.), causing a chain reaction that ultimately damaged a total of six vehicles, including five involved with an annual show.

The establishment hosted its 12th Show N' Shine between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday (July 10).

Around 3 p.m., police were called after a pickup truck reportedly went into the parking lot and crashed into one of the vintage vehicles, leading to a domino effect that hit four others.

Mounties spokesperson Const. Deanna Law says the driver of the truck was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries, while another person sustained minor cuts from the incident.

"At this time, impairment is not believed to be a factor," Law explains, but the cause of the crash remains unknown as of this publication (July 11).

She adds all the vehicles on the lot were unoccupied at the time of the incident.

According to a witness, police closed Roderick Avenue to conduct its investigation and the street has since reopened.

The Tri-City News has reached out to Woody's Pub for further comment.
