Witness pulls driver out of burning car in Youngstown

The driver crashed into the Pizza-N-Gyro Place on Market Street

A car crashed into a pizza shop in Youngstown, Ohio.


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A driver was taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after he drove into a building and his car caught fire.

The driver, identified in a police report as 29-year-old Michael Donadio, crashed into the Pizza-N-Gyro Place on Market Street.

A witness saw the crash happen about 12:45 a.m., called 911 and pulled Donadio out of the burning car.

Police noted in their report that Donadio appeared to be high. He was taken to the hospital where police say he refused a drug test.

He was charged with OVI and failure to control.

In July, Donadio was charged after police said he overdosed at a Howland gas station while his 5-year-old son was there.

There is no word on when the pizza shop will reopen. The owner said they have insurance.
