Car Plows Into Center City Burger-King

Yesterday, we arrived in Philadelphia not long after this big Grand Marquis jumped the curb near 8th & Market Sts. As you can see, the car plowed into a Burger King. The Marquis sailed right through a large window and a nearly waist-high brick wall earlier in the afternoon. This accident occurred just a few steps from the busy, nearby PATCO transit line station.
An 85-year-old man was driving the Grand Marquis and  while the car appeared to suffer suprisingly little damage the driver and six others were hurt. One man suffered two broken legs and was listed in critical condition. Others suffered lacerations and minor injuries.
Fortunately, the restaurant was not terribly crowded when the car hit.
