"There was people in every booth right there. There was a lady that was fixin to sit down right there, there was two of these booths slide together and there was people sitting right there," said Ben Cole with Roy's Fried Chicken.

Imagine their surprise when the SUV came into the store. Fortunately no one was hurt.

"She hit the building dead square," Cole said.

And she got all the way inside before she stopped. Surprisingly, this isn't the first time something like this has happened at Roy's.

"Yeah, this is the third time this building has been crashed into," Cole said.

It was 20 years ago when another driver crashed into Roy's, then the accident last month. But there is a third one that makes Cole smile.

Cole said, "7 years ago, a kid, the day he got his driver's license."

Until the dining room reopened, Roy's was still serving food, just through the drive through.
