A highly-anticipated restaurant opening looks like it's going to be even more delayed after an accident. Vancouver's Quan Ju De on the corner of West 12th Avenue and Cambie got struck on Sunday, January 5 by a vehicle that went crashing through its window.
A photo posted to Reddit shows what looks like a silver jeep crashed straight into the restaurant.
Originally meant to open "late November" in 2019 according to reps, the restaurant is still not open in January 2020.
In the photo, you can see the building has banners reading "Opening Soon..." and "Join The Team, NOW HIRING."
According to Vancouver Police, they attended a motor vehicle accident at the intersection at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 5.
"The driver made a turn onto West 12th Avenue and then drove off the road," said Sgt. Aaron Roed in an email to Narcity. They hit the building on the corner where Quan Ju De is opening.
As for the driver, they were injured and transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Luckily, there were no other people involved and no other injuries reported.
Quan Ju De is expected to be Canada's first-ever fully immersive 5-D dining experience.
With projections, sound and other technologies, the view from your table can be transformed into a scene from an underwater reef or even the heart of Shanghai.
In the photo uploaded to Reddit, you can see a handful of first responders attending the scene of a silver SUV that's mounted the sidewalk and crashed into the building while traffic goes by on Cambie Street.

Narcity has reached out to Quan Ju De for comment on the incident and will update this story.
So far, there's no word on whether they will be able to make repairs and open anytime soon.
Both 12th Avenue and Cambie Street are major throughways in Vancouver with fast-moving traffic.
As such, it's not uncommon to see vehicle accidents at that intersection.
