El Cajon, Calif.—
A 66-year-old patron at a El Cajon fast-food
restaurant was killed Sunday when a car crashed into it, but the 74-year-old
driver was not seriously injured, an El Cajon police lieutenant said.
The crash happened just before 8:45 a.m. at the Carl's Junior outlet at
520 N. Second St., Lt. Jeff Davis said.
The victim, described as a regular customer, was sitting in a booth when
a car driven by a 74-year-old El Cajon resident smashed into the restaurant,
The man, whose name was not released, died at the scene, Davis said.
He said the driver, who witnesses said had just been at a nearby ATM,
was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.
Alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor, he said.
