A 26-year-old man was cited for careless driving after falling asleep at the wheel and crashing a pickup truck into Hoover’s Pub and Grill in South Beach police say.
Police say Alexander Price of Newport nodded off while driving north on U.S. 101. The vehicle slowly drifted off the road, jumped the curb and ploughed into Hoovers. Police say it was very fortunate that nobody was hurt, either inside the pub or in the truck.
Hoover’s remained closed Thursday, with no definite date for reopening.
