No one was injured after a pickup truck hauling a trailer crashed into a restaurant in downtown Brighton on Friday morning.
Northumberland OPP responded to the reported collision at the intersection of Prince Edward and Elizabeth streets around 11 a.m.
At the scene, officers discovered a pickup truck which had gone through Vito’s pizzeria on Prince Edward Street.
OPP say the truck veered off to the street to avoid a serious collision with a car which allegedly disobeyed a traffic light. Two people in the truck and two others in the car were all taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Braison Drysdale, a cook at the restaurant, was preparing a pickup order when he walked away from the counter area just as the truck entered the building. He says he considers himself lucky to be alive.
“I hear a crash and look up and there is a truck coming into the building,” he said. “It starts off as a normal day and all of a sudden – I don’t know if I’ve ever been so scared in my life – it was unreal.”
Charges are expected to be laid, OPP stated.
