NAPLES, Fla.- A vehicle crashed into a Burger King in Naples on Monday afternoon.
It happened around 2:15pm at the franchise's location at 6565 Dudley Drive, just off Pine Ridge Road.
About a dozen people were inside the business at the time of the crash, but everyone, including the driver, walked away unharmed.
First responders tell WINK News the woman behind the Land Rover SUV accidently hit the gas pedal, instead of the brake.
A natural gas line was severed during the crash, causing the business to be evacuated by North Naples firefighters. Burger King manager Roberto Picherdo quickly shut off the store's gas line, dodging a potentially deadly situation.
"In my mind, as a manager, I take care of my children inside. These are my kids. This is my life and my people. I just went outside and shut off the gas," Picherdo said Monday.
TECO crews and outside contractors worked to repair the busted gas line late Monday afternoon.
The Burger King will remain closed, until repairs are complete.
