News: 1 injured as car crashes into Castle Shannon diner

ALLEGHENY COUNTY, PA — One person was hospitalized Sunday evening after a vehicle slammed into a diner in the Castle Shannon borough, reports WPXI.

Allegheny County dispatchers said the accident occurred at Bob’s Diner, off Grove Road and Library Road. Local police, fire crews, and medics responded to the scene at around 5:30 p.m.

An initial investigation indicates a driver lost control of their vehicle while traveling down a hill. Moments later, the car crashed into the building, which has remained vacant since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

First responders arrived to find a “large hole” in the side of the structure.

One patient was transported to an area hospital with undisclosed injuries. Officials have not confirmed whether that person was the driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian.

It is unclear at this time whether any charges or citations are expected to be filed.
