Embarrassing moment a scooter stunt goes wrong as the rider crashes through the window of a trendy restaurant – with the $4,000 in damage putting the owner out of business

A Melbourne restaurant owner has been left with no other option but to close down his business after a scooter rider crashed through the front window. 

On Monday night, CCTV captured footage of the rider attempting to perform a stunt before it went horribly wrong and he smashed through a shop front window along High Street, Northcote.

Despite large shards of glass falling around him, the rider miraculously got up without an injury.

But for the owner of 113 Eatery, the Italian restaurant the rider crashed into, the incident was the final straw.

After a long string of recent bad luck, Lorenzo Tron told 9News Melbourne that the cost to repair the damage to the window will cause him to close down in the next few weeks.  

Mr Tron said the challenges he’d endured in running the establishment included not being able to qualify for rent relief, experiencing significant staff shortages, break-ins and now the smashed window.

‘This is just too much for one person can take,’ Mr Tron said.

With damages totaling $4,000, the 113 Eatery owner doesn’t see any other option. 

‘Every time you get the head above the water something happens to push you back down,’ Mr Tron added. 

Although the scooter rider came forward and offered to help out with the costs of the damage, Mr Tron admitted now is the time to walk away. 

The owner had only opened this eatery a year ago, while also having other restaurants in Moonee Ponds and Pascoe Vale.

His business in Northcote will remain open for service until August 14.
