Car Jumps Curb On Michigan Avenue, Misses Hitting Starbucks

CHICAGO (CBS) — No pedestrians were hurt, but some customers in a Starbucks got quite a scare when a car jumped the curb on Michigan Avenue, and narrowly avoided crashing into a building across the street from the Art Institute.

A silver Mitsubishi Mirage jumped the curb at the corner of Michigan and Adams around 1:50 p.m. The car came to a stop just inches from the glass storefront of the Starbucks at the corner.
