A car drove through the front of Speedway Grille last night, according to a Facebook posting on the restaurant’s page.

There is no official word yet on the cause or details of the wreck. The southwest corner of the restaurant was destroyed. We will update when more details become available.

UPDATE: According to Muskogee Police Officer Lincoln Anderson, the vehicle was parked behind Tacos La Tia when an officer turned around to check it out. When the officer did that, the vehicle pulled out of the parking lot. The officer attempted to make a traffic stop and the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed, was unable to negotiate the curve on Okmulgee at Junction Street and ran off the road and through the business.

The suspect, Opal Turner, 34, was transported to Saint Francis Hospital in Muskogee by Muskogee County EMS, then flown by helicopter to Tulsa.

She is charged with driving under suspension, attempting to elude, running a roadblock, possession of Controlled Dangerous Substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.
