The Buick appears to have then accelerated. The Buick cross the eastbound lanes and the grass in front of the Arby’s. The Buick then struck a parked car and a column near the front door of the restaurant, where it came to a stop.

The 26-year-old and the 36-yearold woman driving the Monte Carlo were both hospitalized. The severity of their injuries was unknown Monday evening.
