London, May 20 : It was certainly a 'thrust of hunger', when a man drove his car right into a curry house smashing it through the front entrance of a restaurant.
This drowsy driver was so desperate to take home his meal that he accidentally put his foot on the wrong pedal and banged his Mercedes into the restaurant.
Diners at the Raj Bari in Yarm, North Yorks, were shocked when the 45-year-old driver barged into the restaurant with his car. However, only a few people suffered cuts and bruises.
"The man was handed his meal and went back to his car. He turned on the engine and then it came through the window with such power," The Sun quoted waiter Surinder Singh, as saying, Onlooker Colin Thompson said: "The restaurant is normally very busy. It is amazing no one was more seriously hurt or killed."
The Police have put the blame for this unusual accident on "driver error" but did not arrest him.
