Man dies after van slams into Buffalo Wild Wings in Kennesaw

COBB COUNTY, Ga. – A 19-year-old man died after a vehicle slammed into a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Kennesaw on Friday afternoon.

The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. at the restaurant on Barrett Parkway.

According to Officer Mike Bowman of the Cobb County Police Department, 67-year-old Carol Shipley, of Woodstock, Ga., was attempting to park when she drove a 2014 Chrysler Town and County van into the front of the store. The van continued into the restaurant.

Two people inside the store -- an employee and a customer -- were injured and taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, Bowman said. The customer, William Barton, 19, of McDonough, Ga. was later pronounced dead from injuries suffered in the incident.

The restaurant employee, Lindsey Terronez, 22, of Marietta, was treated for a broken leg. Shipley was said to be okay.

"We seen the doors were caved in, glass was everywhere," said Willie Pringle, who witnessed the incident. "I went inside because somebody said does anybody know CPR. I know CPR, so I went in, and I seen a guy laying there unconscious, and people started helping him, and he started moving, and they said to stay still."

Bowman said that charges are expected to filed in the incident.
