ROCK HILL –
A car crashed into the front of McAlister’s Deli Wednesday afternoon in Rock Hill.
Around 1 p.m., a woman driving a BMW wagon thought her vehicle was in park when she reached down to get her purse. She mistook the gas for the brake, said Rock Hill Police Lt. Brad Redfearn.
The BMW then rolled through the patio area and cracked the support beams at the front entrance of the restaurant off Dave Lyle Boulevard.
No one was injured, and charges will not be filed.
The restaurant remained open.
This is the second time in recent months that a vehicle has rolled into a Rock Hill restaurant. Last summer, a loyal Lee’s Chicken customer in her 80s accidentally drove her mini-van into the restaurant on Cherry Road. The crash shattered windows, and part of the roof line and structure were damaged.
