Bartender Pat Sazenski was talking to a patron at Gordie's Place in Little Canada about the Twins game when he looked out the window to see a telephone pole crash to the ground.
Then he saw the pickup truck.
"I didn't know what was going on. ... The wall exploded, the truck came in," he said. "I'm just glad these guys are alive."
"These guys" are the four patrons who ended up pinned between the bar and the truck Wednesday, May 30, after the 51-year-old driver apparently had a diabetic reaction and crashed into the tavern on Little Canada Road. Two patrons suffered serious injuries.

Obviously, the tavern was built too close to the road. A law is needed.
“Honest dear, I was trapped in the bar!”
Yikes, that video is amazing! Hold muh beer!
In 1982 I was working the graveyard shift at a Circle K in Loma Linda, California. About 2 AM a car pulled into the lot, and just kept on coming. The car crashed through the front of the store, sending broken glass and magazines flying. A young Hispanic couple got out and came into the store. I talked with them and told them I was going to have to call the police for an accident report. In a few minutes the police arrived. Suddenly, they both forgot how to speak English! One of the officers radioed for a Spanish speaking officer, and they soon got to the bottom of it. I’ll never forget that night!
We already know that alcohol was located at the scene.
“let me have one of them there Alabama Slammer’s...?????????......jeeeeezzz Pat,ya oughtta served these outside in da back”
Only accident where the cops gave a breathalyzer test to the witnesses.
