Newcastle Police respond to the scene of a crash at Zoëyogurt on Feb. 18. No one was injured when a minivan drove into the storefront.

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.
