“The brushes are going and soap is coming down and I felt a bang on the back of my car,” said the victim of the incident, Robin Draves.

Draves regularly washes her car at the carwash, which is near her home in Vista, added the article, and said that she has never had a problem at the carwash until now.

According to Draves, the driver behind her did not put the car in neutral and instead left it in drive, resulting in a dented bumper on Draves’ car.

Staff immediately stopped the wash, added the article.

“I went to the driving area and I see the guy just fly out on East Vista Way,” said Draves, who added that the driver took off without talking to her or the carwash staff.

According to the article, Super Star Car Wash agreed to pay for the damage to Draves’ car, which totaled $350.

A spokesperson for Super Star Car Wash told NBC 7 Responds, “Even though our carwash tunnel equipment was not at fault for the damage to Ms. Draves’ car, Super Star Car Wash is paying to have her rear bumper repaired as a customer courtesy to her.”
