RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A driver caused thousands in damage to the 17th Street Farmers Market in downtown Richmond.

Police say a vehicle drove on the sidewalk around the closed-off section of the market, causing damage to equipment and portions of the completed renovation project. The damage is estimated to be around $5,000.

Neighboring businesses say the damage has also pushed the project back five to 10 days, adding that this is an on-going problem.

Renovations to the market began last August.
