A young woman dropping a employee off in her Ford SUV at around 4:20 p.m. Saturday crashed into the Main Street building, shattering glass in a front window, cracking a portion of brick in the front facade and knocking into a Pepsi cooler inside.
Monroe Volunteer EMS personnel are checking on the driver, who appears to be distraught. Her father, who was seated in the front passenger side, appeared to be uninjured, but was visibly upset. Police officers interviewed witnesses and firefighters examined the building for potential safety issues.
Chief Building Inspector James Sandor also checked the damage.
The restaurant is still serving patrons.
