While waiting at a bus stop on Confederate near Moreland Avenue, Latay Mays witnessed an SUV Crash into a Zesto restaurant on Wednesday morning.
Mays said that she got scared and started crying. She had no idea whether the person driving the car survived and then she saw a lady get off the car and started to run.
Larry Schnall, a Senior Georgia State Patrol Trooper, said that 33-year-old Nichole Fillmore was driving a Lincoln Navigator when it crashed into a buinding during a four-vehicle scramble.
Schnall and a trainee, who were parked across the street from Zesto, saw a Navigator go airborne and crashing into Zesto.
According to investigators, three vehicles were stopped in line on Confederate Avenue. The vehicles were headed east and was waiting for the light to change when a red Ford Expedition driven by 55-year-old Betty Jean Clark that was travelling southbound on Moreland Avenue slammed unto them after making a right turn to Confederate Avenue.
The Expedition hit the line of vehicles at the light. The force sent the Navigator careening into the restaurant.
Schnall said that they are still not confident if speed was involved in the crash. The authorities are in the process of determining what happened. The incident may have just been a product of an inappropriate or improper turn and somebody could have triggered the driver to lose control of the vehicle.
Three people in the accident sustained non-life threatening injuries. They rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital.
