Car smashes into Johnny Mac’s on Boulder Highway



The front of Johnny Mac’s Bar and Grill, 842 South Boulder Highway, Henderson, was damaged when a car crashed into the building Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012.

Bryan Sanchez, a chef at Johnny Mac’s Bar and Grill in Henderson, was getting ready to open Thursday morning when he heard a loud noise and watched as a car crashed into the front window of the restaurant.

Luckily, neither Sanchez, who was about 15 feet away behind a counter, nor two other employees were injured. The driver, an elderly woman, did not appear to be injured, either, Sanchez said.

The crash happened about 10 a.m., a half hour before the eatery at 842 South Boulder Highway was to open for business. The dining area was strewn with bricks and glass.

As a result of the crash, the restaurant opened about a half hour late.

Several weeks ago, a car crashed into the neighboring Friendly Donut House.

  1. The way people drive in this town we need to put lolli collumns around every bus stop and building.

    Interesting that those parking spots do appear to have been for handicapped parking at one point in time.
