A 57-year-old woman has been charged with reckless driving after she crashed into six parked cars, two poles and the Toano McDonald’s building, police say.

Sheila Pless, 57, of Little Plymouth, told police she was driving westbound on Barhamsville Road in Toano around 12:06 p.m. Tuesday when she lost the brakes on her Ford F-150, according to James City County Police spokeswoman Stephanie Williams.

Pless told police she attempted to drive into the median, then turned into the Shell Station at 9201 Barhamsville Road.

When she found she was still unable to stop, she turned around, entered the eastbound lanes of Barhamsville Road, then pulled into the McDonald’s parking lot.

In the McDonald’s parking lot, Pless hit six parked cars, two poles and the McDonald’s building, police said. No one, including Pless, was injured during the incident.

Pless has been charged with reckless driving, Williams said.

The McDonald’s remains open, Williams said.
