ALBANY, N.Y. -- A car ran into a lamp post and wound up in the patio area of the Park View Pub near the intersection of New Scotland and Madison Avenue on Thursday.
One of the bartenders, Richard Saunders, says he had just stepped outside when this silver vehicle lost control after striking a car making a left turn.
"The lamp post came down. Happily, I wasn't sitting on the patio smoking a cigarette there," he said.
The driver of this vehicle was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. No tickets were issued, but an investigation is underway.
