WASHINGTON CITY, Utah – A man was killed and four others were injured after the driver of an SUV plowed into an In-N-Out Burger in Utah, officials said.
The deadly crash occurred at the In-N-Out Burger in Washington City located near St. George on Saturday afternoon, KSTU reported.

Utah authorities say one of the people seated inside the restaurant was taken to a hospital in critical condition where he died from his injuries Sunday. The victim was identified as Antonio Mendoza of Las Vegas.
The elderly couple, the pedestrian and another victim were taken to a local hospital.
