Seriously, driving through State College Borough going 60 mph! Are ya daft!?!
A 28-year-old Ferguson Township man was driving down South Atherton Street (Business Route 322) and attempted to turn right on West College Avenue (Route 26) going 60 mph! The “driver” lost control of his Land Rover, jumped a curb, crashed through a metal rail, a cement pillar, the side door and a window before coming to a stop. Are we trying out for the Demolition Derby?
Thankfully, the restaurant was closed (it was 2:45 a.m.) or this would have been a catastrophe! There was a passenger in the car who was treated for minor injuries.
The “driver” failed a field sobriety test (say it ain’t so Joe) and was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center for a blood-alcohol test. The driver will be charged with a DUI and reckless driving.
Arby’s will be closed until next week and the part of the building which was impacted by the vehicle was ruled structurally questionable and will need extensive repairs! Imagine if that restaurant had been full of customers! This bone-head should be throw in jail and not allowed to pass go!
