Days after a Benson couple’s vehicle sustained an estimated $1,300 in damages from a hole in the road they say wasn’t properly covered, a driver in South Omaha had even worse luck with a different cover.

Mari Gonzalez feels hung out to dry after a road repair blunder wrecked her precious "Sanic."

"I feel helpless. I feel bad for my car because it’s special to me," said Gonzalez. The blue roadster, properly named after a Sonic the Hedgehog video game character, hit a dead end last week.

Gonzalez got a panicked call from her dad, Thursday evening. "He tells me, ’I hit something. I didn’t see it. I don’t know,’" Gonzalez remembers her dad saying over the phone.

At first glance, the vehicle seems in-tact and safe for the streets. After her commute to work the next morning, Gonzalez realized she should’ve found another way to get there.
