A driver crashed his car into the Speak Easy bar in Ozark Friday night.

The man was unconscious when emergency responders arrived on scene just after 6 p.m., according to Franklin County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers.

Sheriff Anthony Boen says the driver was an older man from the Fort Smith area. He was taken to a local hospital.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the driver to lose control of his car.

No one else was injured in the crash. Very little damage was done to the building, bar owner Josh Freeman said.
