At 11 a.m. this morning, a single-vehicle accident resulted in the driver crashing through the front of The Steak Factory on Frederick Road.
According to information provided by business owner Anthony Cleaves, the driver of the vehicle experienced medical complications and passed out at the wheel. She crashed through the front of the building at an estimated 75 mph without braking.
“I was standing in my cutting room about two feet from where she came in at. She went from the front all the way to the back,” Cleaves said. “She was unresponsive when we pulled her out of the car, but when she left in the ambulance, she was conscious and responsive and was asking for her daughter.”
No reports have been provided on the status of the driver or where she is receiving medical treatment.
Cleaves said he plans to have the store open by next Wednesday. For more information or updates on the business’s reopening, like and follow its Facebook page.
