Car smashes into North Texas pizzeria, killing 1, injuring 2
ANNA, Texas (AP) — A car driven by an 80-year-old woman smashed into a North Texas pizzeria, killing one diner and injuring two others.
The accident happened about 2 p.m. Friday in Anna, about 40 miles north of Dallas. Police Chief Kenny Jenks says the driver lost control of her car and crashed through the front windows of Mama Mia's pizza, hitting three people eating inside.
Police Sgt. Jeff Camponera says the three diners were an 82-year-old woman, her daughter and a grandson.
The three were taken to Medical Center McKinney, where Jenks says 82-year-old Kathryn Thornhill Hamlin of Anna died. There was no word on the conditions of the other two family members but their injuries weren't thought to be life-threatening.
The driver also was taken to a hospital for examination.
