ELYRIA — A man was taken to the hospital after his car went off state Route 57 and slammed into Wolfey’s Bistro and Pub in Elyria this afternoon.
According to witnesses, the car was southbound on 57 when it was hit by a truck, sending it off the roadway, across grass, under a fence and into the front window of the restaurant.
No one inside the restaurant was hurt. Witnesses said the man was conscious when he was removed from the car, but he had a gash to his head and didn’t seem to be aware of what was going on.
Police have not released the man’s name, but witnesses said he was wearing a priest’s collar.
