Two Taylorville businesses suffered damage after a crash Friday afternoon sent one to the hospital.

 

A witness told police that the driver of the vehicle was westbound on Park St. when he left the roadway, ran into the northwest corner of the Starlight Cafe, then continued straight across Main St. where he eventually stopped on the front door of China Pavilion.

 

Taylorville Police Officer Shane Ponzel says given the path the car took, the crash could have injured many more people than just the driver of the vehicle.

 

 

Ponzel says the driver suffered an apparent medical emergency while driving, which caused the crash.
