ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The Eat Rite diner as involved in a hit and run accident Wednesday morning.
A viewer reports that an 18-wheeler semi truck driving by the restaurant ran over a light pole and crushed a safety rail. The truck even scratched an awning while customers were inside eating.
The semi paused at the intersection and then continued to drive off while a customer chased the truck down. The truck ran a red light in his attempt to flee the scene. Police also report a driver leaving the scene of the accident.
“Eat Rite” rewarded the customer by buying breakfast of two eggs and coffee, according to a viewer tip.
