Worcester, Massachusetts. (WHDH) – An investigation is underway after the driver left the road and thrust a barrel into a restaurant in Worcester on Tuesday.
Paramedics responded to reports of a car entering a building in the area of Chandler Street shortly before 11:30 am and found Toyota Highlander staying next to a Brager restaurant.
“The building moved after it sounded like a boom,” said Rudy Velis, who lives above the restaurant. “We started running and saw the car in the restaurant.”
The video from SKY7 HD showed a fallen fence, debris scattered on the nearby lawn, and a gaping hole next to the restaurant.
The surveillance video captured an SUV crashing into a restaurant, leaving bricks and crushed pieces of wood scattered in a Brazilian restaurant.
Pedestrians were just one step away from being beaten and seriously injured.
“They’re pretty upset about the whole thing. Their son was right next to the wall a few seconds before it happened,” said business advocate Orlando Davila. “It was a big bang and the whole building shook. Yeah, it was pretty scary.”
The unnamed driver was taken to a local hospital. The three workers in the restaurant at the time of the crash were not injured.
Police temporarily blocked the area, allowing authorities to assess damage to the building.
At the time, the two owners were inside the building and said they had just opened the store two weeks ago.
There were no additional details.
