Cleanup is underway at the Prohibition Taproom in Spring Garden after a driver crashed into their outdoor dining area.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- An out-of-control vehicle destroyed the outdoor dining area of a bar in the Spring Garden section of Philadelphia.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Prohibition Taproom on the 500 block of North 13th Street.

Surveillance video outside the Taproom showed a vehicle crashing into cabanas which the bar used for outdoor dining.

The bar was closed at the time and no one was hurt.

Action News is told the driver was taken into custody.

"We're going to get everything rebuilt, but number one priority is getting it cleaned up and safe for everybody to come in today and keep people in business," said the bar's manager, Adam Shipley.

Shipley said thankfully this happened after they closed for the night.

The Taproom was able to open back up on Sunday for their normal business hours.
