A man has been hospitalized with a serious leg injury after a car crashed through the front of a Subway restaurant in Milford on Monday afternoon, police said.

The man, a customer in the restaurant, was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.

But police said the outcome could have been worse.

“Thankfully he didn’t suffer any head injury, when we got here he was sitting up on the floor talking to us,” said Milford police Sgt. Robert Tusino.

The driver of the Subaru Legacy was not hurt and said she was having a problem with her brakes when she crashed into the building, police said.

No one else was hurt in the crash.

No charges have been filed, but the crash remains under investigation.
