LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. - A teenage girl backed her SUV into a Lake Oswego restaurant on Tuesday.
The crash happened around 12:45 p.m. at Casa Del Pollo, located at 15910 Boones Ferry Road.
According to the Lake Oswego Fire Department, the driver backed into the restaurant at high speed. There were nine customers inside at the time and one of them ended up with a minor arm injury. No one else was hurt.
"Normally, several people are sitting at the front door during lunch hours," said Jorge Zuniga, the restaurant's owner. "I am so glad that was not the case today. Those people would have been badly hurt or even worse if they would have been sitting there."
A construction company was called to help shore up the building and secure it until repairs can be made.
The Lake Oswego Police Department is investigating. There is no word yet on whether any charges or citations have been filed against the driver.
