On Monday morning a truck smashed into the front of Mari Luna Latin Grille on Reisterstown Road in Pikesville.
No one was in the restaurant at the time, which Mari Luna general manager Salvador Khadra said was around 9 a.m. But the accident caused considerable damage, Khadra said, ramming into a supporting wall.
Khadra said that the restaurant's management is working toward a temporary reopening, as soon as this weekend, but that complete renovations will take considerably longer.
The Mari Luna Mexican Grill and Mari Luna Bistro across from the Meyerhoff are open.
