A Lincoln Valentino's restaurant became a drive-thru when an elderly man crashed his car through the front door and then ordered a pizza on Wednesday.

The crash happened just before noon at the Valentino's Pizza near 70th and Vine streets. According to witnesses and firefighters, the driver ordered the pizza while he was waiting for emergency crews to arrive.

"We went outside and we just saw this car trying to pick up pizza I guess, but he decided to drive through the building instead of parking out front,” said witness Don Brouse. “The gentleman said his foot had stuck on the gas and he was going to go ahead and order some pizza, so he wasn't too upset it about evidently, but it sure was a surprise to us."

The driver was taken to the hospital as a precaution. No one inside the restaurant was injured.
