Vehicle Crashes into Manchester Restaurant

A vehicle crashed into a Manchester Restaurant late Monday afternoon.

It happened at the Sunset Family Restaurant on West Main Street in Manchester shortly after 4 pm.

Teresa Faulkner told KMCH she was across the street when she saw it happen.

The vehicle came to rest fully inside the building towards the dining room’s south wall near the restrooms. There is a large hole in the front of the restaurant just to the west of the front door. Dining tables and chairs could be seen toppled, with broken glass everywhere.

Manchester Police say no one was injured – just scrapes and bruises. They have not yet released the name of the driver.

Police initially believe this may have been a vehicle malfunction, with a stuck accelerator. The investigation continues and more details are expected to be released later.
