Car crashes into Burger King


The Follansbee Burger King will have to repair damage after a car crashed into the building Monday evening.

A driver drover her car straight into the dining area of the restaurant.

There were no injuries, but there will be a lot of clean-up needed.

The Follansbee fire and police departments responded along with Brooke County EMS.

Follansbee Fire Chief Larry Rea explained how the crash happened. He said the driver thought her car was in reverse when she hit the gas pedal, but it jumped forward instead.

Charges will likely not be filed. The fire chief also said the Burger King manager had a crew on the way to board up the smashed window.
