Jeep Plows Into Restaurant

Grand Cherokee Narrowly Misses Patrons in Michigan Restaurant

Talk about narrow escapes! They don’t get much closer than this one.

Fortunately, it doesn’t appear that anyone was seriously hurt. But this Cherokee plowing into a Michigan restaurant had to create quite a scare for everyone involved.

After all, when it comes to enjoying the thrills of taking a Jeep off-roading, we sincerely doubt that this is what most fans of the nameplate have in mind.

In fact, we’re pretty sure that this kind of adventure would even rattle the most die-hard Jeep off-roaders. Even those who have tackled some of the tougher trails in Moab.

According to Geo.TV, the near catastrophe started with a 74-year-old grandmother driving a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee in Michigan. She apparently panicked and mistakenly hit the accelerator instead of the brakes. Which sent the Cherokee plowing into the restaurant while customers were eating.

However, NBC4i.com reports that the driver was actually a woman headed to the restaurant with her mother and children.

Either way, in the video clip posted above, you can clearly see three people sitting at one of the booths. Two of them get jolted forward when the Jeep comes plowing through the diner. The clip then shows some of the patrons rushing over to the Grand Cherokee, apparently trying to make sure the driver is okay.

Needless to say, there will probably be a few empty seats in this place for a while. At least until the restaurant can make the necessary repairs. But the bright side is that everyone is somehow safe.
