He said he was only trying to scare his girlfriend. Instead, they both ended up in the hospital.

A 19-year-old man was driving southbound on 900 East early Monday when, according to police, he tried to scare his 18-year-old girlfriend by swerving the car. Police said the girl reached over to correct the steering wheel, and the Mercedes convertible ended up plowing into the Coffee House at 900 East and 900 South.

"Police called and said someone had gone through our drive-through," said store owner Alan Hebertson. "But we don't have one."

Police said the couple was taken to a local hospital in non-life-threatening condition.

In addition to the front glass doors being knocked off, Hebertson said his building suffered some structural damage.
