ST. GEORGE — An afternoon at In-N-Out in Washington City was violently interrupted Saturday when an SUV plowed into the side of the building, resulting in injuries inside the restaurant and the vehicle.

Around 2:45 p.m. in the parking lot of the shopping center — where Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, In-N-Out and other businesses are located on Telegraph Street — an elderly couple had just gotten into their 2011 Chevrolet Traverse and were heading south toward In-N-Out when the SUV struck a pedestrian, Washington City Lt. Kory Klotz said.

“Witnesses said the pedestrian brushed it off … but the driver of the vehicle, the elderly male, appears to have panicked,” Klotz said, adding witnesses said the elderly man seemed to freeze up.

The driver may have meant to stop, but instead of hitting the brake, he hit the gas instead, he said.
