HANCOCK, Md. (AP) — A Hancock car dealer says a storm that produced golfball-sized hail caused $250,000 in damage to 80 vehicles on his lot.

Stephen Douglas, owner of Douglas Motors, says the storm started about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. He says hail dented many cars, although others, including one whose rear window was shattered, had as much as $8,000 in damage.

New and used cars, as well as cars belonging to customers, were damaged.

Douglas says he and his employees were inside during the storm, so there were no injuries.

    Who does the writing? “Hail Causes $250,000 To Dealership’s Vehicles”.

      I agree, the word rain always makes me think of hail damage to cars…

    I think the picture attached to this article really helps this story.

    I just do not understand what is up with the horrifyingly bad writing and pictures on this site. Some distorted, weird stock photo with the word Rain on it? Who comes up with this? I rarely come here now because there is no follow up, poor writing and a complete inability to give readers any idea of what is really going on. Reporters used to get photos to match stories. Now they are lazy. No thanks.

    Since it seems apparent that poor writing skills is causing extensive mental and physical suffering among Americans I believe it is time to enact drastic measures to solve this scourge that could mark the end of our planet.

    All American news and media operations should immediately cease and placed under federal quarantine until this debillitating condition is corrected. When returned to service offenders should face fines and execution for further lapses in sanitary grammar implementation.
