10 injured after vehicle hits Vegas restaurant
LAS VEGAS (AP) - April 1, 2013 (WPVI) -- Authorities say 10 people have non-life threatening injuries after a vehicle crashed into a Las Vegas restaurant during the lunch hour.
Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski says people were transported to two nearby hospitals in serious condition after the crash at the Egg & I restaurant on Sahara Avenue a little after 12:30 p.m. Monday.
Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer says rescuers initially summoned at least 10 ambulances to the eatery a few blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip.
Police say one person was arrested.
Meltzer says some of the injured may have been dining on a patio outside the restaurant, and witnesses may have grabbed the driver when he or she tried to leave the scene.
