Spring, TEXAS - A fiery crash caused more than a million dollars in damage at a Spring car dealership early Tuesday morning, deputies said.

Harris County deputies said a man driving a 4-door silver car was leaving the Pappasito's parking lot on the I-45 feeder road just north of Richey Road just after 1:45 a.m.

Seconds later, investigators said he was hit from behind by a woman driving an SUV.

Investigators said- the impact of the crash caused the woman driving the SUV to lose control and slam into the Tom Peacock Cadillac dealership's light pole.

Police said the collision started a fire that burned and melted nearly a dozen SUVs.

A Local 2 viewer sent in video of the massive fire as it burned.

Deputies said the victims were taken to Northwest Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
