U-Haul smashes into front of Lubbock's Texas Roadhouse

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A local restaurant got a surprise Sunday morning - and it wasn't a good one.  A U-Haul truck crashed into the front of the Texas Roadhouse near South Loop & Slide.   Neil Cavanaugh, 50, was arrested for DWI. 

Stefan Gentry, Texas Roadhouse Managing Partner, says restaurant employees were left cleaning up the mess.

Gentry says, "A lot of my employees are here …  Hasco construction really rallied quick. They're trying to help us clean up and get a wall up…  Part of the restaurant will be closed.   There's a lot of damage."

Luckily no one was hurt - but the u-haul did leave a huge hole in the front side of the building.

Texas Roadhouse was able to open around 12:30 Sunday afternoon.  That's just an hour later than usual.
