4 Injured When Semi Truck Crashes Into McDonald's

AMARILLO - At least four people have been taken to the hospital after a semi-truck crashed into the McDonald's at Amarillo Boulevard and Pierce Street..

Police say around ten last night a semi-truck hauling hay crashed through the west wall of the building, continued through the front counter and into the kitchen.

One person was reportedly ejected from the vehicle, and two people from the sedan were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police say the driver of the semi-truck was stuck inside the cab for some time before firefighters were able to safely remove him.

No life-threatening injuries or deaths have been reported at this time.

Officials are concerned of a possible gas leak in the building as a result of the crash.

It is unknown at this time whether that issue has been resolved.
