PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) — A Chipotle restaurant in Portage will remain closed through Monday after a driver smashed into its glass front area.
The crash happened just after 8 a.m. Monday at the Chipotle at the corner of S. Westnedge and W. Milham avenues.
The Portage Department of Public Safety said a Portage woman was trying to park her car when it hit the building, damaging the windows and a door.
Portage officers initially said the driver confused the gas and brake pedals, causing her car to accelerate into the restaurant. However, a woman claiming to be the driver told 24 Hour News 8 her brakes failed.
No one was hurt, and alcohol was not a factor in the crash, police say.
It’s unclear how much damage the crash caused. The restaurant will remain closed until repairs are complete.
