The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office has some unexpected advice: “We suggest using a door and not trying to make your own when visiting your local golf shop.”
That was the message the law enforcement agency posted to its Facebook page Thursday afternoon after a man smashed his car into a golf pro shop in Spring Grove.
The crash happened at 11:23 a.m. Thursday outside Pro Circle Golf Center, 1810 Route 12 in Spring Grove, McHenry County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sandra Rogers said.
“[The] driver said his foot slipped off the brake pedal and he inadvertently pressed the accelerator pedal, which caused the vehicle to crash through the building,” Rogers said. “The vehicle went over a parking block before striking the building.”
Rogers did not have information about whether the driver was cited.
