DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A truck slammed into a light pole and then hit the side of a restaurant supply store after it was involved in a crash Sunday afternoon, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department.

Police said Timothy Williamson was driving a Chevrolet truck east on U.S. 92 approaching Lincoln Street around 12:50 p.m. when he hit a Ford that was in the outside lane, likely while Williamson was trying to merge into that lane.

Both vehicles veered off the road and the truck hit a street light pole before slamming into Angela’s Restaurant Supplies, according to a news release.

Firefighters initially said both vehicles hit the building but police said Monday that the Ford did not hit the store or the pole.

Williamson and his passenger, Dickie Taylor Dreher, suffered minor cuts but did not need medical attention. Williamson was cited for careless driving and Dreher was arrested on an unrelated warrant out of Palm Beach County, records show.

The woman driving the Ford and her passenger were taken to an area hospital to be treated for aches and pains. Their injuries were not life threatening, records show.

The crash is believed to have caused $10,000 worth of damage to the building and $5,000 worth of damage to the light pole.
