The Florida Highway Patrol has cited a 65-year-old woman for crashing into a Spring Hill restaurant, injuring several people.
The crash occurred on Tuesday, February 5, at the Beef O’Brady’s located at 14387 Spring Hill Drive.
Troopers said the brakes of the woman’s Saturn Ion were not working when it crashed into the front of the restaurant, striking five patrons.
All five victims were transported to area hospitals.
Before crashing into the Beef O’Brady’s, troopers said the woman lost control of her vehicle on Spring Hill Drive, traveled over the center median, across the westbound lanes, traveled off the roadway, over a flower bed, side-swiped a vehicle that was exiting the parking lot, and then hit a parked vehicle as it made its way through the parking lot toward the restaurant.
The woman was cited for unsafe/improper equipment.
Vehicle negligence can happen anywhere, even in restaurant parking lots. Serious accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and sometimes in very unlikely places.
