2 drivers, 2 patrons hurt when by van
UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Police say both drivers and two bar patrons were hurt when two vehicles collided, sending one of them off the road and through the wall of a southwestern Pennsylvania tavern.
Grace Miller tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Friday that "It sounded like a machine gun" when a minivan smashed through the Paradise Restaurant and Bar she bought with her husband, James, about 18 months ago. The bar is in North Union Township, about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh.
Just outside the bar, police say the van driven by 34-year-old William Eggers collided with a car driven by 24-year-old Ryan Barie. Both drivers, from nearby Uniontown, were taken to hospitals after the crash shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday.
