WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Diners at a Wilmington restaurant got quite a surprise this afternoon when a car drove into the building. It happened at Jersey Mike’s on South College Road near UNCW.
The driver frist entered through the empty building next to Jersey Mike’s, which used to be a Blockbuster. The woman drove about 50 yards and then crashed through the side wall of the restaurant, all the way up to the counter.
“I walked in here and I saw the car and saw one of my friends who was standing next to the slicer when the car came in,” said Kristen Clark, an employee at Jersey Mike’s. “She said she had to dive out of the way or she would have been hit by the car.”
There were no injuries from the crash. The driver said she could not see properly because the sun was in her eyes.
