A popular Hudson Valley deli and pizzeria that was destroyed after a car drove through it has finally reopened

In early January, a 25-year-old man from Newburgh fell asleep while driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee south on Route 9W, police say. His Jeep then veered off the road and into a ditch. The impact caused the car to go airborne and collide into Kirky's Deli & Pizza, located at on Route 9W in Milton, and a parked car, according to police.

Photos, which can be seen below, show the eatery completed destroyed by the crash. A third parked car was damaged by debris.

I personally drive by Kirky's every day on my way to work and I've noticed many cars parked outside the business for the past few weeks, but the phone has been disconnected.

This morning, I drove by and saw more cars than normal parked outside the deli, including a bus. I quickly called the deli and got a ringtone! The person who picked up then informed, yes, the deli has officially reopened.

Delays in getting insurance money and then frozen pipes appear to have caused the long closure, according to Facebook posts.

The 25-year-old driver was sent to a local hospital for undisclosed injuries. It's unclear if he was ever charged. A customer was inside during the crash but luckily only suffered minor injuries, according to police.
