Billy Ray's temporarily closes after vehicle hits restaurant

PRESTONSBURG, Ky. – A staple of downtown Prestonsburg restaurants will be closed until further notice after the building has been damaged in an accident.

Billy Ray’s Restaurant announced the news in a Facebook post.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Billy Ray’s will be closed until further notice,” the message reads. “Yesterday there was an accident involving a vehicle and the front structure of the restaurant. We appreciate your patience as we are doing everything we can to resolve this as soon as possible. We look forward to serving you all again.”

The closure comes just as the restaurant was planning to close for a summer break.
