A young driver plowed into the front entrance window of The Cottage restaurant in Linden Square on Sunday. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

The restaurant closed for Sunday night and posted on its Facebook Page/Twitter account late Monday morning that “Unfortunately we are closed due to unforeseen circumstances. We will be keeping everyone up to date as information becomes available.

The operator was cited, there will be no criminal charges. The building inspector was notified  and responded to the scene.

Wellesley has a rich recent history of drivers crashing into homes and storefronts, including that of Quebrada bakery in 2012.
