Car Crashes Into Subway Sandwich In Cerritos

By Brian Hews

The driver of a late model Nissan parked in front of a Subway sandwich shop at the corner of Del Amo and Bloomfield in Cerritos apparently failed to check what position the transmission was in and slammed into the popular sandwich shop just after 2:oo pm today.

No one was injured in the incident.

Damage to the Nissan was rather minor compared to the Subway, which had both doors completely taken out along with all the windows.

Although dejected the owner was just glad everyone was ok.

“We’ll get through this, the repairmen are already on the way.”
