    PUYALLUP, Wash. - A McDonald’s in Puyallup was closed Thursday for an unplanned inspection after a 16-year-old reportedly drove into the side of the restaurant.

    Puyallup police said the teen was leaving the drive-thru, spilled soda and then hit the gas instead of the brakes. He crashed through the wall and hit the soda dispenser at the fast-food restaurant at 4603 South Meridian Street.

    Chopper 7 flew over the scene and captured a slightly patched wall near the drive-thru window.

    Central Pierce Fire and Rescue said the boy was treated at the scene for a foot injury.  

    No other injuries were reported.

    The restaurant was closed and no information was given on when it would reopen.

    The crash is under investigation.
