ROBINSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — One person was taken to the hospital Wednesday after crashing into a local restaurant.
Deja vu at the Robinson Township Primanti Bros. A car crashed into the building for the second time in two years.
Photos provided to us by the Moon Run Volunteer Fire Company show a white Subaru on its side, wedged between a retaining wall and the side of the building.
We showed the photos to patrons this evening.
“Yikes. That doesn’t look good at all,” Kevin Castelucci said. “I’m surprised. I don’t quite understand why people fly up and down this road. But, I guess it’s just typical of all our roads. Everybody is in a hurry to go nowhere.”
In September 2020, a tractor trailer rammed into the front of the building, causing significant damage. It has since been remodeled.
Today’s crash happened in the back of the building, knocking out part of a cinder block wall.
Primanti Bros. President Adam Golomb issued a statement to Channel 11 saying in part “There were no injuries to restaurant guests or team members [...] Primanti Bros. remains committed to ensuring its parking lots are well-marked and simple to navigate.”
According to first responders, one person did have to be pulled out of the car. They were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
“Thoughts and prayers for the people that were in that car and, hopefully, they are safe,” patron Vinnie Castelucci said.
We did reach out to investigators to find out what may have caused the crash, but we’ve not heard back.
