Police will request that the state evaluate the driving ability of an elderly man who crashed through the front entrance of the downtown Burger King on Friday.
The man, Rouland Steppert, 78, of Wausau said he mistakenly placed his foot on the accelerator of his Lincoln Town Car on Friday morning, causing the car to lurch into the glass entryway of the restaurant at 300 N. Sixth St., Patrol Inspector Bryan Hilts said.
The man backed the car from the damaged entryway, exited the vehicle and went inside to order breakfast.
Shocked Burger King employees served the man, and police arrived to find him eating at one of the restaurant’s tables. General Manager Kathy Fasse declined to say what the man – a regular customer of the restaurant – ordered for breakfast.
