101708cras.jpgAfternoon diners at the Indus Vally Indian restaurant saw their curry spiced up with some shattered glass Saturday when an SUV bearing a Haitian senator plowed into the enclosed patio after being clipped by a cab. Seven passengers from the two vehicles were treated for minor injuries at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, and no one in the restaurant was hurt. Waiter Kabin Hamal told the Daily News, "All the glass came flying. People were hiding under the tables." A hole had to be cut into the roof of the SUV in order to remove the senator—in town to raise money for hurricane relief—and her entourage. A produce seller across the street described the scene to the Columbia Spectator: "I heard some screeching, and then I saw the car turn really slowly into the restaurant. The glass just exploded out of the wall." Hamal added that two diners who were seated where the SUV crashed had vacated their table "like one minute before."[Photo Cred.]
