A driver of a Toyoto four-door pick-up truck slammed into the entryway of McGee’s Bar & Grill at 1645 Park Street at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31.

Several firetrucks responded after the accident knocked out water and electricity at the bar, and smoke from the tires (caused by the driver attempting to move the vehicle) initially sparked concerns of a fire at the popular watering hole.

According to firefighters at the scene, the driver walked away from the accident and refused medical attention. No injuries were reported as of 9 p.m., though extensive damage to the front of McGee’s was caused by the accident.

Two blocks of Park Street (between Lincoln and Buena Vista avenues) had to be closed while the truck was towed away.
