10 injured after vehicle hits Vegas restaurant

Monday, April 01, 2013

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.
