The driver was the sole occupant of the car and was evaluated at the scene, but declined further medical attention, Giorgetti said. At the time of the crash the restaurant was closed and no one was in the building.
An initial on-scene investigation indicates that the driver did not appear to be impaired, he said. Human error or mechanical failure are the two most likely causes of the crash, he added.
The incident is still under investigation by the Saugus Police Department. Giovanni's will not be allowed to reopen until the structural damage is assessed.
