Restaurant Had a Zoom-Through Lane

Posted February 8, 1997

— Most fast food restaurants have a drive-through lane, but one at a Fayetteville restaurant became a zoom-through lane Friday night.

Witnesses say 17-year-old Rocky Williams sped through the Exxon/Burger King rest stop near Ramsey Street...and wrecked a row of cars.

One man said he was eating his hamburger as the dramatic incident began. "That silver car came flying through (doing) about 80, and jumped the median," Jason Brown said. "It went through the gas pumps, almost slide and missed a fuel truck, then hit all these cars."

Police say three teenagers were in the car, and the accident apparently scared them.

Officers say they all tried to run, after the accidents. So far, only Williams has been charged.
