1 Injured After Vehicle Crashes Into Bar in Lebanon

One person was taken to the hospital after a vehicle crashed into a bar in Lebanon early Sunday morning.

Firefighters were called to Beaumont Highway around 2:20 a.m. to evaluate someone for an unknown problem.

Shortly after they were called, officials said it was reported that there was a car that had crashed into a building.

The first crews at the scene found a single vehicle inside of the Lebanon Tap Room with significant damage to the building and bar area, fire officials added.

The vehicle had hit several embankments along Beaumont Highway before it crashed into the building, according to authorities.

The driver of the vehicle was able to get out on his or her own and was evaluated at the scene.

Firefighters cut power to the vehicle and mitigated a fuel spill from the vehicle, they said.

One person was transported to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries, according to fire officials.

Connecticut State Police is investigating the cause of the crash. The building is currently uninhabitable until an engineer can inspect the damage, authorities added.

Fire officials said the crash happened when the bar was closed. They said they believe if anyone was in the bar when the crash happened, there would have been potential for serious injuries.
