MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A Montgomery restaurant made a lighthearted joke Tuesday morning, the day after a vehicle crashed right into the dining area Monday evening.
“Our food is so good you won’t stop chowing for nothing'!” Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe posted to its Facebook page. “We are open today and everything is okay with our new drive-in & dine!”
According to Montgomery Police Captain Regina Duckett, a vehicle crashed in the 2500 block of Berryhill Road and struck a building. Duckett said the building sustained moderate damage and an initial investigation indicated the driver mistakenly accelerated.
A WSFA 12 News crew and viewers at the scene show the building damaged to be Taziki’s at the Shoppes at Eastchase. A viewer photo shows the car inside the restaurant.
Duckett confirmed there were no injuries.
The Montgomery Fire Department confirmed that while the vehicle crashed through a window, it pushed a main support for a load bearing wall over by nearly a foot.
This isn’t the first time a vehicle has tried to create a drive-thru at this particular restaurant. In February of 2018, the driver of a white Nissan sedan caused light damage to the building but did not enter the restaurant.
