The pizzeria was open at the time of the crash, but no customers were inside.  The owner said this wasn’t the first time in his four decades of doing business that this has happened.

The crash appears to be accidental at first glance.  Cheektowaga Police accident investigators will interview the elderly driver to make a final determination.
