A tractor trailer struck a Newtown restaurant early yesterday morning. King's Restaurant will be closed after the original section of the building was moved by the force of the crash and broke away from the addition. The driver had to be extricated, but was able to walk around before being taken to the hospital. The driver was identified as Jorge Delgado-Cardenas. The accident on Wednesday happened around 1am. About 100 gallons of fuel spilled and an environmental clean up service responded. The cause of the accident is under investigation. There is a history of crashes at this spot on Route 25, with two just last year.
