The Amarillo Police Department say a semi-truck hauling hay was traveling south on Pierce when it struck a white Honda traveling on Amarillo Boulevard.

After striking the Honda, the semi-truck reportedly veered into the McDonald's parking lot, hit another vehicle, and pushed it through the wall into the west side of the building.

The second car was a Ford Explorer. 

At about 3 a.m., the semi was pulled from the building, the Explorer was taken out about about 4 a.m.  

There are a total of seven people who were injured and sent to the hospital with minor injuries.

Right now, crews are working on cleaning up the damages. The whole restaurant is fenced off during this clean up.
