Police: Driver who crashed into Ann Arbor Panera mistook gas pedal for brake
The driver, who was headed north on Murfin Avenue, was making a right turn onto Plymouth when her foot hit the accelerator instead of the brake, Ann Arbor Police Lt. Renee Bush said. The car she was driving crashed through a wall at the front of the restaurant, startling diners inside the restaurant about 10 a.m. Sunday.
Witnesses said the car's bumper and headlights were visible inside the restaurant.
The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, Bush said. Huron Valley Ambulance spokeswoman Joyce Williams said two people were taken to University of Michigan Hospital, but it was not clear whether the second person was a passenger in the car.
Police did not provide information about the age and hometown of the driver and the make and model of the car. Police were not available on Monday to provide details about the accident.
