A man was taken to the hospital after the car he was driving ran into the west side of Lee's Chicken on Wednesday afternoon.
The Mercedes-Benz hatchback drove into the restaurant at Coddington Avenue and West Van Dorn Street at about 4:20 p.m. It's unclear if the car was in the roundabout south of the restaurant before the crash.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue Capt. Dan Jones said the man, who was the only person in the car, was conscious when transported and no one in the restaurant was injured.
Acting Battalion Chief Curt Faust said part of the building's structure was resting on the hatchback, so responders left the car in place to prevent the restaurant's roof from collapsing.
Faust said the city's Building and Safety Department was investigating to determine the extent of the damage.
