A stuck-accelerator is being blamed for a Georgia car accident that left two injured and a vehicle embedded inside a Sonic restaurant in Lawrenceville.
The Georgia car crash occurred on Sunday, July 11th at about 10:00 a.m. A driver was parking at a church on Grayson Avenue near the Lawrenceville Mall Shopping Center when the vehicle suddenly surged into the restaurant next door. The vehicle crashed into a wall near a cooling unit and was lodged about three feet into the building.
No one in the restaurant was injured. The man and woman inside the vehicle sustained minor injuries and were taken to Eastside Medical Center in Snellville for treatment.
The make and model of the vehicle have not been released.
Equipment failure is the fourth most common cause of Atlanta car crashes. Sudden acceleration has made headlines this year as millions of Toyota vehicles were recalled for several problems including sticky pedals that could cause sudden acceleration.
