Mark Casados of Los Alamos and his friend were having breakfast at McDonald’s about 9.a.m. Saturday when they got the surprise of a lifetime. A vehicle jumped the curb and hit the restaurant, shattering the glass.
“My friend saw the car. We were really lucky,” Casados said. Los Alamos Police and Fire Departments were on the scene within minutes.
According to deputy police chief Kevin Purtymun, the driver of the vehicle was a 95-year-old Los Alamos man, who was treated at the scene by LAFD and was not transported to the Los Alamos Medical Center. The man was able to drive the car home. Purtymun said the man did not receive a citation because the accident occurred on private property.
