Wreck Damages Local Business

Two people were injured and patrons at a local restaurant were jolted by a two-vehicle accident in Meridian Tuesday.

The accident happened about 1:30 p.m. on 18th Avenue, near The Rib Shack.

Officials say a truck rear-ended an SUV, then rammed into the business, sending customers scrambling.

Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No one in the restaurant was hurt.

"I saw him and I ran to the door and there was nothing I could do, so I just told everyone to get out of the way," said Ronnie Shack, owner of The Rib Shack.

The wreck is under investigation by the Meridian Police Department.

    I agree Chantell, The Rib Shack is always clean. The food is delicious and the workers are very courteous. As far as Mr./Ms. Renovate,please sweep around your own front door first. Thank God no one was seriously injured in this accident.

    Not sure what the kitchen looks like but the restaurant is always clean in the dining area....I personally like "The Shack" and the owner and his workers are always nice. There are always people hating on other. We should learn to love and support small businesses in this town.
