A hit-and-run accident caught was on camera overnight at the Gaslite Cafe in Wintersville.
A semi-truck struck the front of the building, then its deck, and continued driving.
Though owner Mike Petrella says he’s glad it appears no one got hurt, he is concerned about his business re-opening in a couple of weeks as planned because of the damage.
“Our planned date was June 2nd,” he said. “This does put a little damper in the day, we’re still aiming for June 2nd, obviously, with the amount of damage here and getting the insurance company involved, we’re still going to try and be open for our customers’ sake and get all this repaired in time.”
The Wintersville Police responded to the scene. There is no word yet a suspect.
