DERRY, N.H. (AP) - No one has been seriously hurt after fire officials say an out-of-control vehicle drove into a Derry restaurant.

It happened shortly after 3 p.m. Friday at T-Bones Great American Eatery on Crystal Avenue.

The Derry Fire Department says the vehicle ran into a column supporting part of a roof over the entranceway to the restaurant after the driver lost control.

It continued on 150 feet before coming to rest in an adjacent parking lot. Two people in the vehicle have been taken to the hospital as a precaution.

No one was hurt inside the restaurant, but it was evacuated.

Firefighters were able to shore up the damaged column and the restaurant reopened about 5:30 p.m.

Derry Police didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on whether the driver will face any charges.
