CCTV: Driver crashes through Houston restaurant
06 November 2014
US police say at least nine people have been hurt after an SUV apparently trying to park, smashed through a restaurant window in Houston yesterday.
Lunchtime diners at Dimassi's Mediterranean Buffet scattered in panic as the vehicle ploughed through the restaurant and crashed into buffet counter.
The driver then tried to reverse the car out of the restaurant, only for it to lurch forward again pinning a man underneath the counter.
Authorities say most of the people who were hurt have injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
The female driver allegedly told the police that the accident happened because she mistook the accelerator for the brake.
