A 61-year-old female crashed through the wall of the popular Wellesley Hills bakery yesterday.
Police anticipate at least one citation to be filed against the driver who crashed through Quebrada’s front window Sunday, causing damage to the store's seating area and a refrigerator. Lt. Jack Pilecki of the Wellesley Police Department said the driver, a 61-year-old female, will likely be cited with “failure to use care and caution while starting” in the Sunday morning crash. The driver told police she stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal. The incident is still under investigation, according to Pilecki.
No one was seriously injured in the crash through the front window of Quebrada bakery Sunday morning.
The loud crash startled many, and police received 10 emergency calls within two minutes after a car had crashed through Quebrada bakery yesterday morning. According to a Wellesley Police Department video, the vehicle slammed through the glass window taking out an industrial refrigerator and a seating area in the store. “The vehicle involved was pulling into a parking space in front of the bakery,” the narrator of the video says. “The vehicle apparently then jumped the curb, went over the sidewalk and through the glass window.” The store was crowded at the time of the crash, but no one was sitting in the area involved, according to the video.
