Tonya Gilardi, a spokeswoman for Port Orange Fire, said Charles Pierce was not injured when he crashed his car into the Biscuits ‘N’ Gravy restaurant at 11:11 a.m. Monday. But another customer was treated for minor injuries at Halifax Health Medical Center in Port Orange, the Daytona Beach (Fla.).
“A firefighter told me he sat down and ordered breakfast right after the crash,” Gilardi said of Pierce. “He sat close to where the crash occurred so he could keep an eye on his car.”
According to Port Orange Assistant Police Chief Wayne Miller, Pierce was attempting to park Monday at the restaurant when he pressed the accelerator “one too many times” and the vehicle slammed through the glass window of the cafe.
Pierce was issued a citation for careless driving. This is why you have insurance, folks!
