Car crashes into Freestone’s Wild Flour Bread on Bohemian Highway
At least six patrons suffered minor injuries after a car crashed Sunday afternoon into the popular Wild Flour Bread bakery in Freestone, the CHP said.
The crash involving a silver BMW hatchback was reported just after 12:30 p.m. The driver, who wasn’t identified, was pulling into a parking spot when he hit the accelerator instead of the brake and plowed into the Bohemian Highway bakery, CHP Sgt. Eric Iverson said.
“It was full of patrons,” he said.
He said one person suffered a leg injury and was taken to the hospital by a relative. Five others suffered minor injuries but weren’t taken to the hospital.
Gold Ridge firefighters responded to the accident.
The bakery was also the site of a crash in 2015, when a suspected drunken driver in the parking lot crashed into another car which then smashed into the entryway. One person was injured in that incident.
