Submitted by Keizer Fire District

Two patrons of a River Road sandwich shop were injured when a vehicle crashed through one of the shop’s front windows over the weekend.

Eleanor Pohl, 84, of Keizer was pulling up to Quizno’s, 5133 River Road N., around 3:40 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, when she told police she mistook the the accelerator for the brake and drove up over the curb and through the restaurant’s window.

Two patrons were struck as the vehicle entered the building. A 43-year-old male suffered injuries to his legs and a 43-year old female suffered cuts, abrasions and bruising. While none of the injures appeared to be life-threatening, both were transported to Salem Hospital for evaluation, police officials said.

Keizer Police and the Keizer Fire District both responded to the scene at 3:43 p.m. Keizer police are still investigating the crash and no citations have been issued as yet.
