GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Several people were injured when a truck crashed into a Mexican restaurant in Florida.

The Gainesville Sun reports that National Taco Day was interrupted at La Tienda on Wednesday when a 59-year-old man crashed into the restaurant’s patio. The truck hit a patio table, but no one was sitting at it.

One woman who had been sitting nearby was taken to the hospital by ambulance, and another woman said she was going on her own to have her foot checked.

Gainesville police arrested the truck’s driver on a DUI charge. He was also taken to a nearby hospital after complaining of an injury.
