Out-of-control pickup truck in Northlake injures 2, damages cars, restaurant

NORTHLAKE, Ill. (WLS) -- An out-of-control vehicle damaged several vehicles, sending one car into a restaurant and injuring two people Saturday.

A heavy duty Dodge Ram pickup truck with an attached trailer was traveling northbound on Manheim Road when the driver lost control after hitting a pothole, police said.

According to authorities, the truck then went over the median and plowed into the Victoria Restaurant.

Before it came to a stop, the truck hit a white SUV that was traveling southbound on the same road and sent the SUV through the restaurant's wall, officials said.

"We just heard a big bang and then, there's a hole in the wall," a patron said.

The truck also damaged several parked vehicles and came to a stop after breaking through the fence of a car wash, police said.

One person inside the SUV was injured and a second person had to be extricated from a separate vehicle, police said. The extent of the victims' injuries is not clear.
