Car crashes into restaurant, injuring a patron

The woman had just walked into the Mexican restaurant and sat down before ordering a drink. Then the unthinkable happened: A car crashed into the restaurant and struck the woman, who was thrown about 15 feet.

Luckily, she survived. The car accident is a cautionary tale of what happens when drivers panic. In this case, the 89-year-old man behind the wheel hit a curb, apparently panicked, and hit the gas instead of the brake.
