Don't Eat in Newton

Oddly, it is time for me to break for lunch:

"Two killed when car smashes into Newton restaurant" by Travis Andersen, Olivia Arnold and Lauren Fox Globe Staff and Globe Correspondents  March 02, 2016

NEWTON — An SUV plowed into a Newton restaurant Tuesday evening, killing two patrons and seriously injuring three people, officials said.

The two deceased victims were eating at Sweet Tomatoes on Washington Street, Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said at the scene. She did not provide their names, ages, or genders because officials had not yet contacted next of kin.

Ryan said the crash occurred shortly after 6 p.m. when a vehicle came down Chestnut Street in West Newton and failed to stop at the intersection with Washington Street before slamming into the restaurant.

Seven people, including the driver, were sent to area hospitals with injuries, according to Ryan....



"Bradford Casler, a 55-year-old realtor from Newton, has not been charged. Officials have not named him; he was identified in Registry of Motor Vehicles documents."

That's all I needed to taste.
