Sanford man arrested after car crashes through diner
SANFORD (WGME) -- Two people are hurt after a car slammed into a Sanford restaurant.
It happened late Tuesday afternoon at the Third Alarm Diner.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Third Alarm Diner in Sanford has had a car crash into their building.
Tuesday afternoon, the diner was open at the time of the incident and firefighters say two people were transported to the hospital, one being a customer.
Police say the injured customer was first taken to Southern Maine Healthcare in Sanford, but eventually transferred to Portland by a helicopter and is in serious condition.
The incident involved three cars.
28-year-old Mark Nolet, the driver of the vehicle that plowed into the building, was arrested for driving without a license.
Authorities say there were tables where the car ran through, but thankfully no one was sitting in them.
The owners say all the staff is safe, and they're really just taking it one step at a time.
The building is patched up now, and they're not sure when the diner will reopen.
They say their main priority while fixing the building for the night is the make sure everyone is safe and whoever might have gotten hurt is okay.
