KFC Crash

Posted on 28th May 2013 at 16:01

It doesn’t appear that any serious damage was done to the KFC-A&W restaurant on Washington Way, after a pickup slammed into the building at about 9:30 last night. Longview Police do report that the driver of the vehicle suffered some serious injuries in the collision. Witnesses say that the small pickup had come through the parking lot, and had crashed into the side of the building. Longview Fire also responded with aid personnel, and they report that the single adult male occupant suffered significant injuries. He was transported to St. John Medical Center, and then was transferred to a hospital in Portland. The man’s name hasn’t been released as of yet, and his condition hasn’t been updated. No other injuries were reported, though there were people inside the building at the time of the crash. Battalion Chief Eric Koreis says that a preliminary assessment showed only cosmetic damage to the exterior and interior of the restaurant, and he says that the building remains safe to occupy. Additional information should be released later today.
