A single vehicle accident on Thursday afternoon left windows broken, but no more significant damage when a truck struck a glass wall at the McDonald’s restaurant on Prairie Valley Road in Summerland.

The accident occurred around 3:40 p.m. when the truck accelerated on Prairie Valley Road near Highway 97.

Police said the accelerator may have been jammed, resulting in the accident.

There was no structural damage to the restaurant. While the glass wall and the outer panes of two windows were broken, the rest of the building was unaffected.

The driver of the truck, a 74-year-old Summerland woman, was not injured.

Police are continuing their investigation.
