The station reported that the truck crashed through a series of glass windows at the restaurant on Stewarts Ferry Pike at around 3:45 a.m.
Customers and employees inside the Waffle House had to jump out of the way of the truck, but according to WTVF, no one suffered serious injuries. One person reportedly suffered cuts from broken glass, but was not taken to a hospital for treatment.
The driver of the truck was taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence. A passenger in the truck fled the scene of the accident and, as of last week, has not been located.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing. The accident caused the restaurant to remain closed for several days, as the damage caused by the crash had to be repaired.
