Four people were taken to the hospital after a pickup truck crashed into a pizza shop in Hampton, New Hampshire, late Saturday night.

According to the Hampton Fire/Rescue Department, emergency crews responded to Greg's Bistro on Lafayette Road around 9:15 p.m. and found a truck had crashed through the pizza shop's storefront.

Four people, including three restaurant patrons and one person from the truck, were taken to an area hospital. There was no word on the extent of their injuries, and fire officials did not say if it was the truck driver, or a passenger, who was injured.

The fire department did say the truck driver was arrested, though no charges were provided and officials did not say what caused the crash.

The crash displaced six people from the two apartments above the restaurant, fire officials said. The American Red Cross - New England Region was assisting those individuals. The building was being secured and structurally stabilized. A building inspector will be out Monday.
