A motor vehicle slammed into a restaurant in Ledyard with people dining inside Friday evening.
A 2007 Mazda, which was being driven by 70-year-old Geraldine McGoonan, of Ledyard, "struck the brick front" of Valentinos Restaurant, which is located at 725 Colonel Ledyard Hwy. just before 6 p.m., police said.
McGoonan was taken to the Lawrence & Memorial Hospital with serious injuries, police said. No one inside Valentinos was injured.
The building inspector and fire marshal in town inspected the building and "determined it could remain open," police said.
The Ledyard Police Department, the Ledyard Fire Department, and Ledyard Volunteer Emergency Squad responded and are investigating the crash.
