Upon arrival officers found a black Nissan Rogue SUV in the middle of the outdoor patio of the restaurant, with the driver waiting outside of the vehicle.

The SUV crashed through the 2-foot wall that surrounds the perimeter of the patio and came to rest on top of a pile of debris.

The driver’s husband arrived soon afterward to check on his wife and survey the damage.

“I’m just so glad everyone’s okay,” he said. “It was the first question I asked when she called to tell me.”

The St. George Police Department and St. George Fire Department responded and tended to the scene.

    Lucky no one was sitting there. If the DUI is going to .05 then we need to take a serious look at elderly drivers also!

      Most likely cause of the accident: texting/cell phone usage.
