Dine, Dash And Crash

Four women trying to skip out on their bill at an International House of Pancakes ended up plowing into the Detroit restaurant as they sped away.

No one was injured in the accident Tuesday morning.

Restaurant manager Raymond Jefferson tells the Detroit Free Press the women ran from the IHOP just after 6 a.m. without paying their bill. Their server chased them out the door.

But one of the women lost control of the Mercury Cougar as they drove away, crashing through the restaurant's wall and smashing at least one large window.

The driver, 19-year-old Ashanti Barber, was ticketed at the scene.

Her father, John Barber, tells The Detroit News his daughter had more than $200 in cash on her at the time and was talked into dining and dashing by friends.

    The force of the crash caused her to break a leg and she was promptly offered a job! She hopped away with a slap on the wrist.
