Royal Oak, MI – A vehicle crashed into Wow Mediterranean Cuisine at 1015 N Campbell Rd in Royal Oak Wednesday afternoon.
According to Royal Oak Police Lieutenant Al Carter, “The 90 year old driver at 4:12pm was driving southbound on S. Campbell approaching Gardenia when he accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.
“He veered off the roadway, jumped the curb, struck some landscaping bricks and ran into the wall of the business. There was no injuries but the elderly driver was transported to William Beaumont Hospital for precautionary measures. The driver was cited for the accident for not having his vehicle under control.”
It is unclear when the small, stand-alone carryout restaurant will re-open.
