KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) — Three people were hurt when a car plowed through the front of a 28th Street restaurant Thursday afternoon.
It happened around 2:30 p.m. at Grand Traverse Pie Company restaurant on 28th Street near Shaffer Avenue SE by Woodland Mall.
Kentwood police say the driver hit at least one vehicle on 28th Street, then went across the parking lot and through the front window of the restaurant.
“I heard a loud crash and I thought it was some dishes falling. And I looked up and there was a car through our store,” said Lisa Ehorn, who works at the restaurant.
At least one of the injured people was sitting inside the restaurant. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
Ehorn said she crawled in the damaged vehicle and stayed with the driver until emergency crews arrived.
“She said that her chest hurt and her neck hurt. She tried to hit the brake, but I think she instead hit the gas,” Ehorn said.
“And she had got in an accident prior on 28th Street,” Ehorn continued. “Her airbag went off and she was trying to get to a safe location and then she crashed through the store.”
Kentwood police say it does not appear alcohol was a factor in the crash, but they’re still investigating.
