Fast food restaurant reopens after car accident in building

ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) – The Subway restaurant in the 2800 block of Winchester Avenue is open again after a car crashed into it Thursday afternoon.

The building, firefighters told WSAZ, suffered significant damage.

“All the fire trucks and people around, I just didn’t get involved,” said Perry Adams, who lives in a house behind Subway.

He says he was at home when the car drove through the restaurant’s front window, but at the time he did not know what had happened.

“I went out the back door and I didn’t know if anyone had gotten sick from eating or anything, but I didn’t interfere because there were enough people,” Adams told WSAZ.

Ashland Police and Fire Department responded to the accident, which happened just before 4 p.m. Thursday.

Ashland Police Chief Todd Kelley said the person who crashed into the building was driving a white Chevrolet Equinox. The driver was not injured.

Ashland Fire Chief Greg Ray said no one was sitting near the window when the accident happened.

“The timing with how it happened is everything,” Adams said. “Someone else, other people could have been injured and killed.”

Adams says due to the heavy gunfire and police presence, he knew they had the situation under control.

“Rescuers, they need their space, they need you out. They don’t need our input,” Adams told WSAZ. produce and nobody was there, I probably would have run there.”
