Local St. Augustine reporters at Historic City News have learned that St. Augustine Police were called to McDonalds Restaurant located at 1106 North Ponce de Leon Boulevard yesterday to investigate a motor vehicle crash into the building.
Upon arrival, Officer William Protami contacted the driver, Beverly Dostick, who told the officer that she was attempting to park her car in the lot south of the restaurant, when she went over the curb, through the glass and came to rest in the dining room.
As a result of the impact, the window on the south corner of the building was shattered.
When the vehicle hit the building the occupant of the booth of the adjoining wall had to jump out of the way, possibly injuring his leg. He declined to be transported to the hospital for further examination.
Dostick stated that she had a medical issue with her sugar level and that was the reason she ran into the building.
Community Affairs Officer Barbara Stevens of the St. Augustine Police Department reports that emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene and stabilized Dostick’s sugar level. The driver was not cited for the accident.
