A silver Smart Car slammed into the front of the Brite Spot restaurant in Echo Park late this afternoon, demolishing a bench and damaging a wall but causing no major injuries.
The car was turning right on to Sunset Boulevard from Park Avenue when the driver swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle, said an LAPD traffic officer at the scene. The car drove off the street and across the sidewalk before smashing into a wall near the front doors of the Sunset Boulevard restaurant at about 5 p.m. The driver was standing by her car and did not appear to suffer any major injuries. The officer said no pedestrians were injured.
A silver restaurant bench, however, was smashed to pieces.
