AUSTIN, Texas, March 25 (UPI) -- Five people were injured when a pickup truck struck a taco stand early Monday in Austin, Texas, police said.

A woman and a man suffered broken ribs, and a cook working inside the stand suffered grease burns from the impact. Two other people received minor injuries, the Austin American-Statesman reported.
