Car vs. Restaurant

The sand in front of this East Seventh Street restaurant was placed there to mop up car fluids from a crash that happened shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday. It woke up quite a few of us on Block 832.

It did not appear that anyone was injured, but the storefront was clipped at the bottom near the door.

The owner had just spent several days perfecting the signage for the restaurant, which features Jamaican specialties. Luckily it was spared worse damage in the crash.

Park & Seventh has had several worse crashes in recent years. One took out a signal box on the northwest corner and another damaged the newsstand on the northeast corner. Both also happened in the wee hours.
