A white Mercedes hit the front of The Lighthouse Homemade Italian Ice on Brighton Avenue in Long Branch Friday evening.
The incident was reported just after 6:30 p.m. and the car could still be seen with its front end sticking out of the building as of 7 p.m. The driver reportedly backed their car into the building, according to witnesses at the scene.
The Lighthouse is closed for the season, so nobody was in the building at the time of the collision.
The Long Branch Fire Department and Long Branch Police were on the scene and had closed off Brighton Avenue from Second Avenue to Ocean Boulevard.
