TRENTON, GA (WRCB) -- Randy's Family Restaurant in Trenton doesn't have a drive-thru. But an accident today changed that.

A pickup truck, driven by an employee, lost its brakes coming down a nearby hill, and ended up near the front door of the restaurant, slamming into the eatery.

No one was seated at the booth where the truck hit, but a customer had just put his silverware down at the table and had walked away.

Janice Howard, one of the owners of Randy's said the crash sounded like the ice machine letting a bunch of ice down "It was really loud!"

Best known for being the home of the 48-ounce burger, popular restaurant is now cleaning up after the accident.

Once the damages are assessed, they'll be able to determine when they can reopen.

But Howard is optimistic after the surprising start to their day, saying "It was a shock, as long as no one's hurt, we're fine."
