California AA Accident Attorneys

A truck crashed through the front of a restaurant, seriously injuring an elderly woman last Thursday evening in San Rafael.

According to a spokeswoman from the San Rafael police, the crash took place just after 5 p.m. at Lundy’s Home Cooking at 1143 Fourth Street between A and B streets, where the 1991 Chevrolet Blazer jumped up a curb, struck the woman, and smashed into the front of the restaurant.

The crash pinned the 78 year old woman, whose identity has yet to be announced, inside the debris of the restaurant for more than 10 minutes until county firefighters were able to free her. She was then taken to nearby Marin General Hospital with significant injuries, where she still remains in critical condition.

Fortunately, no one inside Lundy’s was hurt in the crash, as it had already closed for the day. Argellio Savido, a worker at the restaurant who was inside at the time of the crash, confirmed that no one was hurt and noted that he was standing in front of the window just moments before the crash took place.

The driver of the truck, a 55 year old man from El Sobrante, was taken to a local police station for questioning. His name has not yet been released.

The portion of the street where the accident occurred had been closed down to allow for the setup of the weekly farmer’s market, where the truck’s driver had a vendor’s booth.

Owners of nearby shops noted to police that the accident sounded like a bomb; one noted that it sounded as though the truck may have accelerated before crashing into the building.

A city building inspector was called to the scene to examine the two story building, which has apartments above the restaurant, and it was determined that it was still safe to inhabit.

Police are currently looking into what may have caused the crash. An initial investigation has ruled out the influence of alcohol as a potential factor.
