Witnesses tell police the van was traveling down U.S. Highway 36 westbound very quickly. The driver lost control, went off the road and into the parking lot of the newly open Primanti Bros. restaurant, hitting about 10 parked vehicles.

According to Avon Assistant Police Chief Brian Nugent, three people were injured. A person sitting in one of the parked cars was taken to IU West with minor injuries, while the other two  — both occupants of the car that caused the wreck — went to Methodist with more serious injuries.

Crash re-constructionists are on the scene.
