CHURCH POINT, La. — The Church Point Police Department have released more details of an accident that occurred Monday when a pick up truck crashed into a Sonic Drive-in that left several employees injured.

CPPD say they received a call on April 26, at approximately 2:54 p.m. about a vehicle hitting the Sonic building at 149 S Main St. in Church Point, and called for ambulances and first responders upon their arrival.

Police say that a 79-year-old male driver and a female passenger from Duson were found in a white Ford Truck, but were not advising of injuries at the time.

Three sonic employees were inside the building and did sustain minor to moderate injuries from the crash, police say. The three injured were then transported by the responding ambulance services.

Other employees were also in the building but advised they were not injured.

According to police, the investigation revealed that the driver of the truck was pulling into the stall to place an order when his foot slipped and got lodged between the accelerator and the brake.

This caused the truck to accelerate and jump the curbing and went into the north front corner of the building.

Police say the driver of the truck was not cited for the incident.
