No one was seriously injured early Saturday when a car left U.S. 231 and crashed through the Waffle House building. Arab police say they are pursuing charges against the driver.

A 19-year-old female was taken to Marshall Medical Center North, where she was treated for minor injuries and later released.

The wreck happened a little after 7 a.m., according to Arab Assistant Police Chief Shane Washburn.

“The driver was headed south on U.S. 231 when her vehicle left the roadway, went up the embankment, went airborne, landed in the Waffle House parking lot before crashing into the south side of the building and exiting the other side,” Washburn said.
