Carri Sailor heard a loud thump just after the lunch rush hour Monday at Rookies Sports Bar & Grill. When she rushed outside to see what had happened, she saw a car had crashed into the fence surrounding an outdoor patio at Rookies and struck a nearby gas meter.
Gas was spraying from the broken meter.
An elderly man she believed to be the driver was sitting on the ground across the street, surrounded by a group of passersby who ran to help after the accident.
