::Car Drives Through Chili's Restaurant

From Raleigh Chronicle Staff & Wire Reports
Wednesday June 13, 2007

RALEIGH - According to the Raleigh Police Department, a restaurant customer at the Chili's Restaurant at 6324 Glenwood Avenue gave new meaning to the term "drive-thru." 

Police say that on May 31st, a Raleigh man accidentally drove his Toyota through the front of the restaurant.

It's not quite clear how the driver made the mistake.

In the police report, the responding officer said that the driver originally said he was pulling into the parking space and thought the car was in park when he took his foot off the brake.  Then, according to the report, later at the hospital, the driver said that he was leaving and thought he had the vehicle in reverse when he hit the gas.

At any rate, the car drove through the wall, knocking it down, and came to rest partially inside the restaurant dining area.  The police report says the car was 15 feet inside the restaurant.

Police say that four people inside Chili's sustained minor injuries and had their meals abruptly interrupted.

Donnie's Wrecker Service had to pull the car out of the restaurant and the driver was taken to the hospital.  He was charged with careless and reckless driving and a failure to reduce speed.

Last week, the restaurant had put part of the wall back up that was knocked down which were held up by two by fours until it could be repaired permanently.  Some pieces of the wall where the car hit it were still on the ground at that time, but the restaurant was quickly reopened for business after the incident.  ::
