ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. -- A car is still stuck in a local business four days after crashing into it.

The silver Jaguar S-Type rammed into a building at 543 Atlantic Blvd. early Saturday morning. Cinder blocks and car parts are still scattered across the parking lot and the east side of the building.

The car is still in the building because police had to wait for an inspector to make sure the building was stable enough to remove the car without collapsing.

Atlantic Beach Police say the building is safe and crews should be able to remove the car sometime today.  The site has nearly turned into a tourist attraction.  One couple stopped by to pose for pictures.

Dick Brown's curiosity led him to the car crash. The former Neptune beach mayor did a double take.

"Interesting little mystery. Came to see what the rest of the story is."

It may be the newest attraction at the beaches. In the small time frame Action News was there Tuesday, at least a handful of different groups showed up taking pictures, some of them even posing with the mangled mess.

According to Atlantic Beach Police, the driver was speeding and driving erratically. He eventually lost control, hydroplaning during a heavy rain early Saturday morning.

We heard from a number of Action News viewers wondering why the car wasn't removed after four days.

A police spokesman told Action News the city building inspector didn't make it out until Monday. The tow truck was slated to arrive Tuesday, taking away the unique photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike.
