ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a 79-year-old man is dead after his pickup truck crashed into an eastern Pennsylvania restaurant.
South Whitehall Township Police Chief John Christman says the crash happened just after 12:30 p.m. Sunday when the Palmerton man lost control, sideswiped two vehicles, hit a utility pole and slammed into the side of Norma J’s Restaurant.
The Lehigh County Coroner’s Office says Norman Wisser was pronounced dead at the scene about a half-hour later. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
The restaurant wasn’t open at the time of the crash.
No one else was injured in the wreck.
