A senior East County woman was transported to Lakewood Ranch Medical Center early Sunday morning after suffering a heart attack while in the drive-thru of a Checkers restaurant.
A Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report states Rosalia P. Antoni, 79, was stopped in the drive-thru parking lot of the Lockwood Ridge Road Checkers restaurant when she began to suffer from a heart attack and stepped off the brake, hitting the vehicle in front of her.
Dame Pannell, 65, of Sarasota put his vehicle in park and got out to check on the driver behind him. Antoni was still experiencing the heart attack and pressed the accelerator, pushing her vehicle into the rear of Pannell’s car. Both vehicles went over the curb and through the bushes, the report states.
Panelli did not suffer any injuries. Both vehicles were damaged.

Food and fun
The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance and its Young Leaders Alliance have something to talk about: the organizations collected 764 pounds of nonperishable food and $1,295 cash to benefit The Food Bank of Manatee/Meals on Wheels PLUS.

A little “Ho! Ho! Ho!” can go a long way this holiday season.
