One woman has died and two others were seriously injured when a Denny’s sign was blown over by heavy winds in a parking lot in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
The sign landed on a car occupied by the three victims — two women and one man.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Chris Denham of the Elizabethtown Police Department told NBC News.
Security footage from another restaurant nearby showed the exact moment the large Denny’s sign was blown off a pole, with the end result being it blown onto the vehicle below.
“When we arrived it was determined that there were occupants inside the vehicle,” Denham said. “it was certainly very windy out here and I’m certain that was a factor and was involved in this.”
The woman who died was 72 years old, NBC News reported. The other occupants of the vehicle were transported to a nearby hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. The woman who died reportedly was in the back seat of the car.
The accident happened around 1:30 p.m. when winds reached speeds reportedly up to 60 mph. Per NBC, it took crews about four hours to lift the sign up off the smashed car.
