Again!?! Car Plows Into Clovis Restaurant

It has happened again.

For the third day in a row, someone has driven a car into a Central Valley business.

This time, it happened in at "China To Go" in Clovis.

"It's China To Go, not China Drive In," jokes Homer Huo, the restaurant's owner.

Around 12:30 p.m. a man driving a dark gray Neon drove through the front glass of the restaurant.

Clovis Police believe he may have confused his accelerator for his brake.

At the same time, Marco Garcia was eating lunch at the restaurant.

"I'm shaking. I'm still shaking. I can't believe this," he says.

He had been sitting at a table just feet from the window, when the car came crashing in.

"When I saw that he pushed the gas, when he broke the glass, I had to jump. I got some cuts on my hands and elbow," Garcia says.

The impact was so strong, it even broke a window panel on the neighboring donut shop.

Huo says the man who was driving the Neon is a regular.

He was taken away in an ambulance to get checked out.

"No one was really hurt. The glass break is easy to fix," he says. "We'll be okay. Hopefully it won't happen any more."

Huo says he can't wait to see the man again.

He wants him to know he has no hard feelings; an accident is an accident.

He wants to give the man a, "nice meal, no charge. Come back safely.  Everybody [is] happy after that," says Huo.

Tuesday, an unlicensed teen-ager drove into a 7-Eleven in Southeast Fresno.

Monday, a person drove into a shipping store in Reedley.
