Most California residents have seen tongue-in-cheek images posted online of cars that have driven into places of business. From banks to convenience stores, drivers sometimes accelerate when meaning to brake, causing vehicles to crash through windows or walls. Fortunately, many of these cases involve little to no injuries. The same cannot be said of a restaurant accident that occurred this week.
According to news reports, a 56-year-old driver was attempting to park in front of a restaurant on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 23. The woman accelerated in error, launching her vehicle into the restaurant. Reports indicate that the driver was injured in the crash and was being treated for injuries.
