No injuries from crash into cafe

Gary Tennyson, at left, tells Edmond police officers Curtis Thompson and Danny Austill about having lunch at the One Cafe when a vehicle skipped the parking lot and plowed into the building.

A female driver missed the brake pedal and instead hit the accelerator causing her vehicle to crash into the One Cafe during the noon lunch hour Monday, said Jenny Wagon, Edmond Police spokeswoman. No injuries were reported at the crash site located at 122 E. 15th St.

“I do not believe she will be ticketed. It’s private property,” Wagnon said. “I don’t think there are any charges that want to be pursued on that end.”

The crash did cause a shock when it damaged part of the wall causing brick and window damage, said Gary Tennyson, a patron of the cafe. He was sitting close to the window but not near enough to be hit by the car.

“I was in there and it was over with before I knew what happened,” Tennyson said. “It was one of those things when you look over your shoulder and say ‘Wow.’”

The matter will likely be settled by insurance companies, Wagnon said.
