On Friday morning, a vehicle crashed into a Santa Maria Red Lobster. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened at the Red Lobster on the 1500 block of South Bradley Road, sometime after 8:00 a.m. Very few details about this one-vehicle crash have been released, but we do know that the driver of a blue Chevrolet Malibu reportedly lost control of his vehicle. Thankfully, the restaurant was not open at the time of the crash, so there were no customers inside.
Initial reports indicate that alcohol and drugs were not suspected as factors, but the cause of this crash is still under investigation with local law enforcement officials. The restaurant did sustain damage, and a construction crew was called in to evaluate how long it would be until they could reopen for business.
