Hit-and-run crash damages Tulsa restaurant

A hit-and-run motorist crashed into and damaged the Corner Cafe, 11th Street (aka Route 66) and Peoria Avenue in Tulsa, early Monday, reported the Tulsa World.

The vehicle struck the western corner of the restaurant at 2:11 a.m.

Even though it is a busy corner, restaurant owner Ali Khater said it was the first time such an accident occurred in the 16 years the Corner Cafe has been open.

Despite the damage, the restaurant operated as usual Tuesday morning, reported KOTV.

KOTV’s report also contained surveillance video footage from inside the restaurant of a car crashing into the building, backing out, and driving away.

A KJRH-TV video report says the car is believed to be a green Ford.
