Dramatic Restaurant Crash Interrupts Business
by: NJM Group on
Bollards can protect you from interrupted business, property damage and dramatic unexpected tragedy. In the U.S., a car has caused a gas leak by crashing into three other motorists and an unprotected building wall.
A woman lost control of her vehicle, clipped two other motorists and slammed into the wall of the Five Guys Burger restaurant in Dover, New Hampshire.
Gas leaked throughout the shopping plaza, with emergency services closing off the area and disrupting business to prevent any further destruction.
This crash could have caused explosive damage to the whole building and the people inside.
Emergency services believe the motorist may have suffered a medical issue, something that can affect anyone on the road - and any surrounding buildings.
Five Guys Burger had its gas main behind the wall facing the road, with no safeguard for the building’s most flammable part.
These tragedies can be avoided with solutions like Australian Bollards’ high impact bollards.
