EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – A vehicle crashed into a restaurant on Newman Avenue in Rumford Friday afternoon.

Police on scene said the driver crashed into some outside seating at the Avenue N restaurant and then hit a wall just after 3 p.m.

No one was injured in the crash but a customer inside described what happened.

“I was folding napkins up at the bar just setting the tables. I heard the car go right through. I looked to my left, the car kept driving, and she finally shut the car off. We hopped out and took the propane tank away”

Owners hope they can reopen Friday night after the building inspector gives the green light.

The accident remains under investigation.
