COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A woman driving a Chevrolet Cruz crashed her car into The Egg and I restaurant located on Weems Road on Tuesday.
According to police, the driver was an 89-year-old woman from Fortson, GA who accidentally hit the gas pedal when she was trying to park her car. The woman's foot apparently slipped hitting the accelerator instead of the brake.
The woman says she is not sure what happened, but she was cited for improper start of a vehicle, a misdemeanor. Her car received moderate damage.
"When I turned around I saw a car come right straight at her (customer) and my first perception was making sure the family was okay, but they were at the cash register so everyone was fine. We can patch this up I'm just glad everyone is okay," Arthur Crittenden said, server at the restaurant.
The business is closed as the owners survey the damage.
