Car hauler crashes into restaurant; 1 killed

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — A tractor-trailer hauling cars has crashed into an upstate New York restaurant, killing one person, causing multiple injuries and collapsing part of the building. Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick says it isn't initially clear if the person killed was a pedestrian or in Simeon's restaurant when the truck hit at about 4 p.m. Friday. He says four people taken to a hospital have injuries that aren't considered life-threatening and other people have been treated at the scene. A crane has been brought in and Myrick says the tractor lodged inside the building is expected to be towed out soon. He says the driver is cooperating with police and no charges have been filed. The investigation is continuing. Ithaca, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College, is 45 miles south of Syracuse.
