Car crashes into Eagle River Subway; police believe marijuana was involved
A vehicle with three people inside crashed through the door of a Subway restaurant on Business Boulevard in Eagle River at about 5 p.m. on Sunday.
According to the Anchorage Police Department, the car went as far as half of its body length into the store, breaking the store’s main door and the window next to it. No one inside the restaurant was injured in the incident.
APD says the driver will be charged with reckless driving and disorderly conduct. Athough the driver of the vehicle did pass a field sobriety test, an investigating officer says he believes that the driver was under the influence of marijuana.
The officer says he wants to send a message to people that are using marijuana under the state’s new legislation.
“If you choose to consume, please treat it like alcohol and don’t drive,” he says, adding that a designated driver is best.
A worker at the Subway restaurant says crews have been able to clear most of the damage and have boarded the door and window. The store expects to re-open after the debris is cleared.
