Two cars smashed into a Wendy's drive-thru restaurant in New Jersey, narrowly missing a family eating outside, after one of them drove off the highway, the South Brunswick police department reported on Monday.
The car flew through the parking lot and struck an Audi waiting in the drive-thru line, police said.
The collision pushed both vehicles into the Wendy's restaurant, smashing the windows and damaging the building structure, the police department said.
A family eating on a table outside Wendy's narrowly avoided being hit, according to the police.
The restaurant is now closed for examination, police added.
"This is nothing short of a miracle that no one was seriously injured or killed in this crash," South Brunswick police chief Raymond Hayducka said in the police statement. "To think it was the middle of the day, people were eating both inside and outside and none of them were injured."
The police department on Monday tweeted a video of firefighters cutting the driver out of the Toyota.
