Car crashes into Zoëyogurt
February 28, 2013
The teenage driver of a minivan crashed into the storefront of Newcastle’s Zoëyogurt at about 3:30 p.m. Feb. 18, according to witnesses.
No one was injured in the crash, but the storefront glass was shattered and will have to be replaced, store owner Tom Hudson said. Damage to the inside of the store was minimal, he added.
One customer reportedly had 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 was closed for only a few days. It reopened Feb. 22 with a temporary store front.
The driver, a teenager with a learner’s permit, slammed into the storefront after mistakenly pressing the gas pedal, rather than the brake.
The 15-year-old was in the car with his mother when the incident occurred.
The store is at 6920 Coal Creek Parkway, Suite 7.
