Birmingham police Officer C. Bailey tells The Birmingham News the black Nissan Altima crashed through an intersection Saturday morning and went airborne before hitting the side of Costa's Famous Bar-B-Que and Steak Restaurant.
Bailey says the driver appears to have suffered a seizure and was taken to a local hospital. His condition wasn't immediately known.
The Nissan also hit a BMW 23 belonging to Rick Pate, the restaurant's owner, sending its hood flying into the drive-through menu board.
The restaurant had just reopened Friday after merging with a Trussville location that had closed. District manager Shirley Robinson said Costa's was cleaning up and would open Saturday.
