Two cars collided at the intersection of Park Avenue and Chandler Street outside B.T.'s Fried Chicken and BBQ at 318 Park Ave. at 1:25 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 27, propelling one of the vehicles into the eatery. The crash is still under investigation, according to the eatery's owners, and no one was hurt. 

The restaurant posted a surveillance video of the crash online

"For those that were curious, unfortunately, we do not have a drive-thru," wrote the restaurant's owners on Facebook. "Luckily no one was hurt when this happened, but we will have to temporarily close until we can replace the front door area of the building. Hopefully, it won’t take too long. We will keep you updated." 

B.T.'s has another location in Sturbridge at 392 Main St., which will still be open while their Worcester location is closed for repairs. According to reporting by MassLive, owners Brian Trietman and Billy Nemeroff hope to have the Worcester location open again by Tuesday, Dec. 29.
