A woman celebrating her 95th birthday is recovering after a man lost control of his Jeep and drove into the front wall of an Italian restaurant in Lake Wales.
The Ledger of Lakeland reports 22-year-old Conor E. Sullivan ran from the scene Monday afternoon, but was found by police a short time later. He was treated for minor injuries and now faces multiple charges.
Authorities say Genevieve Sheldon and her husband Carl both had cuts and bruises and were disoriented after the crash. An ambulance took Carl Sheldon to the hospital in Lakeland. His wife was transported by helicopter. The Ledger reports both were in stable condition.
The vehicle damaged the entrance and front wall of the L'Incontro Italian Cuisine restaurant.
