Vehicle crashes into restaurant patio in Midtown

Marina Filistoeich likes to dine at the tables on the patio when she visits the Crepeville restaurant in Midtown, but it was chilly Sunday evening, so she and her family went inside. Not long afterward, a car ran up on the sidewalk, crashing through the wrought iron fencing, tables and chairs.

“God is in control, that is how it makes me feel”, Filistoeich said, visibly shaken. “It was just too cold today, that is why we didn’t stay outside; we decided to come in and have dinner in here…. We dine out there pretty often at that spot outside, so just imagine us sitting there…”

Witnesses stated that two vehicles were traveling next to each other, west on L Street when the grey vehicle in the north lane attempted to execute a left turn and collided with the red vehicle in the lane next to it, forcing the red vehicle up onto the curb and through the restaurant’s outdoor dining area.

The driver of the grey vehicle stated that his wife told him they needed turn left at 18th street. He stated that he checked the lane and didn’t see anyone, he checked again as he executed his move as his head hit the drivers side window and he saw the red car crashing up on to the curb.

The red vehicle also crashed into a parked black Toyota 4-Runner, belonging to a resident who lives in apartments above Crepeville, and caused a chain reaction collision with two more parked vehicles.

“No one was hurt, that’s one of the greatest things” stated Officer Nutila from the Sacramento Police Department.
