A Domino’s Pizza delivery driver jumped the curb in his van, plowed through the front of the Grand Rapids, Michigan restaurant, and nearly hit two people who were sitting inside, waiting for their order.

According to Twitter user Dalton Fuller, a student at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, what happened next is even more unbelievable.

Fuller’s father started to take pictures of the wreckage, showing the chair that he had been seated in when the van came through the store’s front window. A Domino’s employee demanded he stop. “You need to stop taking pictures,” the manager told him. “You will be sued if you publish those images online.” Fuller recounted the experience in a post on the news aggregation site Reddit.

But the threat from Domino’s management didn’t deter Fuller or his father. Within a few minutes of the incident, the pictures were posted to both Twitter and to Reddit.

“Only two in the lobby, no one asked if we were okay,” Fuller Tweeted about the experience.

Fuller reached out to Domino’s corporate Twitter account for an explanation and apology, but the company has not yet responded.

Based on the photographs provided, it does not appear that the Domino’s driver was injured in the accident.
