Picture it: You decide on a Sunday evening to treat yourself to a doughnut. Sometimes only a half-day-old doughnut will curb that carb and sugar craving. So, there you are, poring over the choices in the glass case when a horrific crash scares you out of your wits. Surprise! A car has just crashed into the doughnut shop. Yes, you read that right.
Yesterday evening two people suffered minor injuries when a car drove into the Donut Star doughnut shop in Santa Ana. Luckily the victims-a Donut Star employee and one customer-only suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene, with no need to be seen at a hospital.
Another fortuitous occurrence is that although a gas line was severed during the accident, it was quickly shut off and did not cause any further damage-like an explosion.
The driver, according to the Orange County Register, was an "elderly" man in his 60s, accompanied by an "elderly" woman of unspecified age. Are we to assume that the reporter was too polite to ask a woman her age? Neither of them were arrested, and no traces of alcohol were apparent at the scene.
Santa Ana Police Commander Larry Coleman reported that the driver said his car wouldn't go into park and must have experienced a mechanical failure. Let's hope that Coleman let the man know that usually a driver should stop the car before putting the car in park. Coleman told the O.C. Register that skid marks indicate that the driver of the car may have hit the accelerator instead of the brake. Perhaps their need for a doughnut was that great that parking the car would have taken up precious time they could not spare.
