A three-vehicle accident involving a police car Saturday night left a crack in the Dinkytown SubwayâÄôs wall.

Close to 10:30 p.m., a driver lost control of her car in the parking lot next to the Subway at 1400 Fifth St. SE, crashing into three other cars and then crashing into the storeâÄôs wall, according to a Minneapolis police report.

None of the cars involved were occupied at the time of the accident. One was a cop car. Addisu Alemeneh, a Subway employee, said two police officers were inside the store at the time of the accident.

The Subway building was left with broken glass and a crack in the wall.

The driver, a minor, appeared to be a college-aged student. He said the girl may have lost control because she confused the brakes with the accelerator.

Two of the cars, including the car that lost control, were towed from the scene. Minneapolis police Sgt. Steve McCarty said there was a lot of damage to the police car.

âÄúThank God nobody got hurt,âÄù he said.

The driver and her two passengers were treated at the scene and released by EMS, according to the report.
