Car crashes through Saskatoon Subway restaurant
Staff are cleaning up this evening at a Subway in Saskatoon after a car crashed through the wall of the restaurant.
It happened in the 2600 block of the 8th Street Subway at about 4 p.m. Thursday.
Police said the car went over the cement parking barricade and came to a stop in the seating area of the restaurant.
Kimberley Fehr was working at the time the incident happened.
"It sounded like an explosion," Fehr told CBC News. "It just came right through the wall. There was a lot of dust and my co-worker was sitting right in front of the fireplace and luckily she wasn't hit ... but it was just all of a sudden, it surprised all of us very much."
Fehr said the driver was very upset and told employees that he had hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.
Saskatoon police have confirmed that is in fact what caused the crash.
The 30-year-old driver has been charged under the Traffic Safety Act.
No one was hurt in the incident.
