Braison Drysdale, a cook at the restaurant, was preparing a pickup order when he walked away from the counter area just as the truck entered the building. He says he considers himself lucky to be alive.

“I hear a crash and look up and there is a truck coming into the building,” he said. “It starts off as a normal day and all of a sudden – I don’t know if I’ve ever been so scared in my life – it was unreal.”

Charges are expected to be laid, OPP stated.
