Car Plows Into Pizza Hut

A vehicle has hit a restaurant in New Bern.

Officials say a vehicle plowed into the Pizza Hut on Glenburnie Road and U.S. 70.

Reports indicate no one needed medical treatment.

A Pizza Hut employee told WITN everyone was away from the dining area when it happened.

There's no word yet what caused the vehicle to hit the building.

    Pizza Hut is trying to figure out how to convert the car into a topping.

    I guess Pizza Hut is also now a drive-thru.

    I'd have walked right next door to the law offices of James Scott Farrin and flopped around like a fish.

      That would be the "Pizza Hut new tunnel carp" syndrome.

    get a life Reason. you dont know the circumstances. It was reported that it was a elderly driver and his wife. And for you to say it was ignorance is shameful. This couple probably has more knowledge than you will ever know. Especially from your post seems you are the ignorant one.

      It does seem that these things usually occur becuase and elderly driver hit the gas instead of the break or they thought it was in reverse.

      First; I posted this without any bias on age, as it had not been released so there is no hatred against the elderly as you may think. Second; I stand by the claim. As bad as it sounds, ignorance is a lack of education or intelligence on a specific subject (hence me stating driver ignorance). It is evident the driver did not understand or lacked the capacity to understand his vehicles mechanisms, resulting in new entry to the Pizza Hut. If he had a medical emergency that rendered him unconscious, then I apologize. If not, then my post stands. You wouldn't argue if your child was standing in front of the car that this gentlemen rammed into the building. Truth hurts sometimes.

    Cuz them people driving out there are half medicated and half driving with a revoked license. Let's see what the details are, that follow this story...

    I would imagine the driver's ignorance was the reason.

      Somebody needs to read some stastics. The last letter I got from my insurance company reduced my premium because (they wrote) older people have fewer accidents.

        Older is different from elder.

          At 74 years of age, I believe most people would consider me ==an elder.

      TYREE is obsolutely correct on the stats about elderly drivers. I feel safer on the highway surrounded by older drivers than I do surrounded by young drivers texting and on cell phones.
