Kennewick driver hits Fat Olives dumpster

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—A Kennewick driver was in the hospital Saturday after she smashed into the dumpster outside the Fat Olives restaurant.

Washington State Patrol says 24-year-old Andrea Hoyt was driving on Clearwater Avenue and State Route 395 in Kennewick when she lost control and crashed into the Fat Olive's Parking lot.  The owner of the restaurant says even with the busy street nearby, he's not worried about future accidents.

"We really haven't had any problems, this is the first incident we've had with anything, any problems, and I think it was an accident with a dog jumping on the lady's lap, and she hit the light pole when she was driving through the parking lot," says JD Nolin, Kennewick Fat Olives Owner.

Washington State Patrol says drugs or alcohol was involved, and the driver was not wearing her seatbelt.  The total cost of car damages is $1,000.
