DEVELOPING: Car crashes through side of southwest Lincoln restaurant

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — We have a Channel 8 reporter on the scene of a crash at Lee’s Chicken, 1940 W Van Dorn St.

A car appears to have crashed into the restaurant just off Coddington Ave right around 4:20 pm. A large hole has been torn into the side of the building due to the crash.

Channel 8 spoke with several employees who were inside. They said it sounded like a tornado came down on the building.

There are booths located on the side of the building that was hit, but thankfully no one was eating there at the time.

It is unclear what caused the crash at this time.

Although no customers or employees were injured, our reporter spotted the driver being taken away on a stretcher.

Some lanes of traffic are blocked off in this area. Please avoid it if possible.

This is a developing story and we’ll keep you updated as new details are released.
