The vehicle was removed and city building inspectors responded; they said the restaurant would have to close for the evening.

Inspectors are working with the restaurant owners who are getting some lumber and hope to shore up the damaged portion so they can reopen this weekend.  

The restaurant will be open Saturday, according to the owner.
