Leave it to Chick fil-A to find humor in a scary situation.

Only Chick fil-A could have a car smash through its dining room and still find a way to serve customers with a smile.

A police chase ended with a juvenile crashing a stolen car into the Chick fil-A on Alps Road in Athens, Georgia, early Tuesday morning. According to the Athens Banner-Herald, it was about 4 a.m. when the young female driver rammed into the popular Chick fil-A location after she lost control of the vehicle. Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the crash, although the restaurant did sustain significant damage.

But even with a dramatic crime scene in their dining room, the Chick fil-A was determined to soldier on, and they did so with pleasure.

Just a few hours after the crash, an employee dressed as the chain's cow mascot was dispatched to the parking lot to cheerfully direct diners to the still-operating drive-thru window. A sign over the damaged wall even poked fun at the situation, instructing drivers to avoid driving through the gaping hole.

And in true Chick fil-A fashion, the restaurant was fully operational by 6am Wednesday. The store shared the happy news on social media along with a much-needed reminder to drive safely.
