DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) - A popular Dewey Beach restaurant has been severely damaged after a car plowed through it and caused a fire.

State Fire Marshal’s Office spokesman Harry Miller says an unidentified driver apparently lost control and crashed into Ed’s Chicken & Crabs early Tuesday. The business was closed at the time and no injuries were reported.

The driver, who was not injured, was pulled from the wreckage by Dewey Beach police officers before the building became engulfed in flames.

Owner Ed Riggin says he does not expect to rebuild the restaurant.

It is unclear whether investigators are filing charges in connection with the crash.

Miller says the crash caused about $75,000 worth of damage to the business.
