What Happened to the Column at the Giant at Ridge and Butler?

If you have been to the Whitemarsh Shopping Center the past few days, you probably noticed the smashed column on the Starbucks side of the Giant. Unofficially we hear that a 15 year old female stole her mother’s car and ended up hitting this column, another wall and eventually a Range Rover.

Don’t worry about the roof of the breezeway collapsing. All that was damaged was the decorative part of the column and not the steel pole that provides the actual support.
