- Two diners inside a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant had to be hospitalized after a truck slammed into the building this afternoon.

The front of the truck’s cab came to rest inside the KFC’s dining area.  Two customers were injured badly enough to be hospitalized, as was the driver of the other vehicle in the initial crash.

The Pinellas Park Fire Department was on scene mopping up fuel that had leaked from the truck.
