Crash Damaged McDonald’s Repaired

Three months after a car collided with the McDonald’s restaurant at 8149 SE Stark Street, workers have begun to repair the damages. On May 4th, a vehicle jumped the curb and collided with the SE 82nd Avenue facing dining-room windows. Witness reports indicate the driver “was doing donuts” before crashing into the building.

Portland Police received the hit-and-run call at 9:43 p.m. A video posted on Instagram shows the store manager making the call. The vehicle entered the restaurant, destroying the aluminum framed storefront windows and the short wall underneath them. Fortunately, the dining room was vacant, and no one suffered injuries inside the restaurant. Crews have reconstructed the support wall and brick exterior, making way for the glazers to install replacement windows next week.

A similar crash occurred at this same restaurant last year. In both incidences, Police identified unsafe driving as the cause of the wrecks. The reoccurrence of damage at this location has not deterred the franchise owner from rebuilding. With luck, this will be the last restoration work at this location for a while.

Update August 18th: Glazers installed new windows in the repaired wall.

McDonalds Post Crash Repairs

Masonry workers are actively repairing the damaged wall of the McDonalds located at 8149 SE Stark Street. On March 2nd, a silver 2003 Infiniti attempted to turn onto Stark Street from northbound 82nd Ave at an unsafe speed. The car lost control and collided with the fast-food restaurant, causing damage to a fence and the building. Last week, crews broke up the damaged concrete deck and replaced it.

Building repairs will restore the broken brick and tile on the building’s exterior. Portions of the wall shifted inwards in the collision, and crews must move it back into a vertical position. A new fence around the outdoor seating area is expected within the next few weeks, fully restoring the damage caused by the crash.
