Mechanical failure is being investigated as a possible cause in a car crashing into this South Surrey restaurant last week.

No injuries in South Surrey restaurant crash

Police investigating if mechanical failure sent car crashing into South Surrey restaurant.

Police, fire and ambulance crews responded to Peninsula Village last week, after a Subaru Impreza crashed into the front doors of a restaurant in the South Surrey shopping centre.

The driver, a 64-year-old South Surrey resident, was not injured in the mishap, which occurred around 6:20 p.m. Aug. 19 at Pasta Vino Trattoria & Bar.

Police say the restaurant was closed at the time, and investigators are looking at whether a mechanical problem led to the unexpected entry.

There were also no injuries in an evening mishap the following evening in White Rock.

Const. Shaileshni Molison said the “non-event” occurred when the driver of a four-door sedan reversed too quickly in a parking lot at the corner of Johnston Road and Roper Avenue, striking a cement barrier.
