Barnstable Police confirmed a chaotic car accident occurred in Hyannis Wednesday afternoon, in which a driver crashed into five cars and a fence before colliding with a Friendly’s restaurant.
Witnesses told the Cape Cod Times that a driver backed into two cars at the Cooke’s Seafood Parking lot on Route 132 before suddenly accelerating forward through a fence separating the property from the adjacent Friendly’s parking lot.
There, the man reportedly hit three more parked cars before slamming into the restaurant.
The driver’s identity and status was not available. It is not clear if there were any injuries.
Police, who are continuing to actively investigate the scene, could not be immediately reached for further comment beyond a confirmation of the incident.
