Drive-Through? Car Smashes into Yorktown Heights Greek Restaurant

Nobody was hurt – the customers were sitting at the periphery of Pappous Greek Restaurant in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. – when a woman drove her car straight through the front and inside, scattering tables and scaring everyone.

The car demolished the front and piled into the middle of the restaurant, just missing a worker sitting at a table near the door, workers there saying they think the woman driving the Jeep hit drive instead of reverse to leave a parking spot.

“Everybody is a little shocked and a little scared,” owner Andrew Cunha told News12 The Bronx. “The person was a little confused. I turned the car off for her, helped her get out of the car. We were just trying to climb over the rubble, and luckily nobody got hurt,” he said.

Customer Will Dionisio says he usually sits by the window, but he luckily was running late. He said he’s just happy that the restaurant wasn’t destroyed.

“They’re a good bunch of people,” he said. “The food is good, the window seats are really nice. But next time, I’m going to sit a little further in.”
