A teenage driver was cited for failure to control his vehicle in an Aug. 9 crash that took out the front window of a Cambridge business.

Rob Warren, owner of E-Serv, 201 W. Water St. in Cambridge, said he heard a loud crash around 2 p.m.

Local emergency responders came to the scene; no one was injured, a spokesman for the Dane County Sheriff’s Office said.

“He basically was going to park here,” Warren said Monday morning, from his office parking lot near where the damaged window frame was now boarded up. “He hit the gas instead of the brake and shot through the window.”

“This is replaceable,” Warren went on. “It’s a window. Nobody got hurt.”

It wasn’t clear how the third car was involved. Cambridge, McFarland and Deer-Grove EMS all responded. Four people were taken to area hospitals.
