FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A sedan collided into the front of a quick-service restaurant in Fort Collins Tuesday afternoon.

The Fort Collins Police Service said it was notified of a crash at the Jason’s Deli located at 1538 E. Harmony Rd. shortly before 2:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Officers arrived on scene to find that a 1997 Buick sedan had driven into the front windows of the restaurant.

Police said the driver of the Buick, 80-year-old John O’Neil of Fort Collins, was unconscious and taken to the Medical Center of the Rockies for treatment.

    I pulled the man out of the vehicle. He was unresponsive and he didn’t seem to be alive. Someone said he had a pulse, and I checked RR. It wasn’t there, and heard gurgling coming from his lungs. He made one large wheezing exhale after a few cycles of CPR. I believe it was the air that had been blown into his stomach exiting

      ^ Thank you, Addison, and others, for helping and administering CPR.
      “RR”? Respiratory Rate?
      Seems that all stores should now install barriers to prevent vehicle intrusions.
