ANOTHER CLIFFVIEW PILOT SCOOP:
A motorist took the meaning of drive-through literally when he hit the accelerator thinking his car was in park and it plowed into the side of the Wendy’s in Hillsdale, a law enforcement source with direct knowledge of this evening’s crash said.
The south side window was damaged, but no one was injured — although the motorist was evaluated by EMS workers at the scene just to be sure, the source said.
Firefighters secured the scene, and the local Building Department was notified.
“The window will have to be boarded up as a temporary solution,” he told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The man told police he had just ordered some food and was stopped in the lot around 5:20 p.m. when he stepped on the accelerator.
