CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Videos and photos show the moments after a truck crashed into Alabama Fish Bar on Tuesday.

The restaurant on Race Street in Over-the-Rhine was not open long before a Nissan Titan barreled through the front entrance.

At the time the truck smashed into Alabama Fish Bar, two customers and several workers were inside. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Cincinnati police put up crime scene tape around the truck, and the driver was arrested for OVI, according to Sgt. Sabreen Robinson.

The building engineer had to check the structure before the truck could be removed to prevent more damage.

“There’s quite a bit of structural damage,” explained Sgt. Robinson. “We’ve had to evacuate the building, which means that all tenants had to leave, until we can make sure that it’s okay for them to be inside and that the building is not going to collapse.”

To make matters worse, customers said the restaurant just completed renovations.
