A woman had driven her sedan into the front of a Martin County pizza restaurant when she had accidentally pressed the gas instead of the brakes, police officers said.
The 66-year-old female driver was heading east on Martin County in her Mercury Grand Marquis when she mistook the gas for the brakes according to preliminary investigations. The woman hit another vehicle near Little East Neck Road in Martin County before driving straight into the front of a pizza shop.
Photos from the scene of the crash show almost all of the light blue sedan inside the Martin County restaurant. The vehicle was underneath an awning bearing the pizzeria’s name and the words “Parking in Rear.”
A restaurant employee was taken to a local hospital after the Marquis drove over her foot in the midst of the mayhem. Two other occupants were taken to the hospital for evaluation. Neither driver was injured, Florida Highway Patrol said.
No arrests have been made and the driver who crashed into the eatery is not expected to be charged. The pizza shop did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The names of the victims as well as the driver has not been disclosed.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a single vehicle accident in which a driver crashed into a pizza store that caused injuries to an employee of the store. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
