Watertown Fire Rescue was called to the Wheel Inn for a vehicle that hit the restaurant Monday afternoon.
The accident occurred at 1:00 pm. The initial call was for two customers inside the restaurant that had been hit by a car and needed medical attention.
Upon arrival, it was determined a vehicle had made contact with the outside of the building at a low rate of speed. The force of the impact was enough to cause an interior wall to come in contact with a table and the patrons sitting at it.
The vehicle was never fully inside the restaurant, and was backed away from the exterior of the building prior to Watertown Fire Rescue arriving on scene. The accident was unintentional, but resulted in one of the two patients being transferred to Prairie Lakes Hospital. The condition of the patient is unknown.
Please remember to always buckle up and drive safely.
