Police suspect alcohol played a role in the crash.

A woman is in the hospital after she was struck by an SUV that crashes into a Boston Market on Tuesday in Allentown.

Police say an 80-year-old man was driving a Lexus SUV around 7:15 p.m. when he somehow lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the Boston Market on the 300 block of S. Cedar Crest Boulevard.

The vehicle struck a 40-year-old woman who was inside the restaurant. She was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital. Police have not yet revealed her condition.

The man was briefly trapped inside the SUV but was freed by emergency workers. According to investigators, the man appeared to be intoxicated and smelled like alcohol, which they believe played a role in the crash.

The man was taken to the Lehigh County DUI Processing Center for a blood test. Charges have not yet been filed.
