PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh police believe a driver had a seizure before crashing his car into a downtown restaurant and injuring himself, three passengers and one pedestrian.

Police had previously said two pedestrians were struck outside The Capital Grille Wednesday night. But police clarified that Thursday, saying one woman believed to be a pedestrian had been in the car but was removed by witnesses before emergency crews arrived.

Police haven’t released the names of any of those involved. The crash happened about 9:20 p.m.

Police say the 36-year-old male driver along with a 41-year-old woman in the front seat and men aged 57 and 39 in the back seat were taken to UPMC Mercy hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The pedestrian is a 47-year-old from California, and was taken to the same hospital.


This story has been corrected to show police now say one pedestrian was hurt, not two.
