A Latrobe man was listed in good condition on Thursday in UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh, one day after the car he was riding in smashed into the exterior of a Unity restaurant.

According to police, Albert Morris, no age listed, was a passenger in a vehicle operated by Marian Morris, no age listed, also of Latrobe, as she attempted to park at Arby's on Route 30 on Wednesday afternoon.

Marian Morris lost control of her 2007 Dodge Caravan and struck the building, causing major exterior and interior wall damage, police said.

Albert Morris was flown from the scene after the 4:20 p.m. accident.

Marian Morris was not injured, police said.

A restaurant spokesperson said the business remained open.

An exterior wall buckled and cracked, and a portion of the parking lot had to be blocked off, the spokesperson said.

No one inside the restaurant was injured.

A contractor is overseeing repairs, the spokesperson said.
