WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - One Wilmington woman drove into Katy's Restaurant Wednesday morning.

According to employees, the woman was going to the restaurant to have lunch with a friend.

She accidentally pressed down on the accelerator instead of the brake and drove the entire hood of her car through the wall.  No one was injured in the accident.

"It could have been a lot worse you know, and imagine she was doing something innocent," said employee Anna Jones.  "It was a total accident and could have been a lot worse there could have been injuries."

Katy's management said they will temporarily cover the hole with foam until it is repaired.
