PHOENIX – Two people suffered minor injuries Thursday morning when a car drove through the glass front doors of a Scottsdale Starbucks, coming to stop completely inside the store.
A woman in her 20s was behind the wheel when the Scottsdale Fire Department arrived around 9 a.m. at the standalone store in Lucky Plaza, on the southwest corner of Hayden and Osborn roads.
“It just appears she jumped the curb, didn’t put it in park an just drove through,” Capt. Dave Folio told KTAR News 92.3 FM.
Folio said things could have been worse, with 15-20 people inside the store at the time.
“Nobody was sitting at the actual table that she hit, and … nobody was waiting for their coffee up at the bar.”
Two people, including the driver, were treated and released at the scene, Folio said. One customer was cut by glass that shattered when the car burst in.
Photos taken by the fire department show a black Hyundai Elantra inside the coffee shop amid glass shards.
