NBC Universal, Inc.

Multiple people could be seen being loaded onto stretchers after a car crashed into the outdoor dining space of a restaurant in Northern Liberties Wednesday morning.

The crash happened near Near 4th and Brown streets, where Cafe La Maude is located. The cause of the crash and extent of people's injuries were not immediately clear. At least four people could be seen carried away in stretchers.

Cafe La Maude's owner told NBC10 that eight people were in the parklet at the time of the crash. The eatery announced it would close for the rest of the day.

The crash left chairs, tables and splintered wood scattered on the ground.

The sedan involved sustained front-end damage and appeared to come to a rest after striking the rear passenger side of a van parked along the street in front of the parklet.
