Police in Ashland City are trying to determine what caused a driver to lose control and crash into a restaurant Wednesday afternoon.

It happened around 2 p.m. at El Rey Mexican Restaurant on the corner of Main and Cumberland streets.

Police on the scene told News 2 the driver wasn't seriously injured but was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.

The restaurant was open at the time but no one else was injured.

Employees said the restaurant will stay open but customers will have to enter through a side door.

This is the second time someone has driven into El Rey Mexican Restaurant.  A dump truck crashed into the restaurant in 2005 after the driver said his brakes failed.
