PARK CITY — Those looking to enjoy a quiet breakfast Tuesday morning got an unexpected surprise when police say a man drove through the side of the building after experiencing a medical episode.

Summit County Sheriff's Lt. Andrew Wright said the man crashed his truck through Kimball Junction McDonald's, 6450 N. Landmark Drive, Tuesday about 10 a.m. By the time police arrived, the man was conscious.

Wright said the driver told deputies the last thing he remembered was waking up to his truck crashed through the building, on the side with the drive-thru. Wright didn't provide the man's current medical condition.

Miraculously, Wright said, no one was hurt in the incident, even though he noted that McDonald's is usually busy.

The crash caused substantial damage to the building, Wright said. He did not elaborate on the extent of the damage or the estimated cost.
