Car Smashes Into Mass. Restaurant
LEOMINSTER, Mass. (AP) _ A car plowed through the window of a busy restaurant and landed atop a table where a family was lunching, injuring 10 people.
The car rocketed through a car wash that abutted the Denny’s restaurant and jumped a curb before slamming through the window Saturday.
The driver, Anthony L. Perry of Fitchburg, and nine others were treated at hospitals and released.
``It could have been a lot worse than it was. The car basically landed in the middle of where they were sitting,″ Deputy Fire Chief Alfred E. LeBlanc told the Sentinel & Enterprise of Fitchburg.
The accident is under investigation and Perry was cited for negligent driving, said Police Lt. Robert Berberian.
