The teenage driver of a minivan crashed into the storefront of Newcastle’s Zoe Yogurt at around 3:30 p.m. Feb.18, according to witnesses.
No one was injured in the crash, but the storefront glass was completely shattered and will have to get replaced, said Tom Hudson the store owner. Damage to the inside of the store was minimal, he added.
One customer reported a sore leg after the incident, Hudson said, but other than that, there were no serious injuries.
“Everybody’s fine, but they were pretty shook up,” Hudson said of his employees.
The store is currently closed, but the owners hope to reopen it within a few days. Customers are encouraged to visit the company’s Facebook page to get updates.
The driver, a teenager driving with a learner’s permit, slammed into the storefront after mistakenly pressing the gas pedal, rather than the brake.
The store is at 6920 Coal Creek Parkway, Suite 7.
