A car driven by an elderly woman left the parking lot outside the Diner at Seal Rock Saturday afternoon, jumped the planter box and plowed straight ahead into the restaurant’s main dining room area. The driver’s elderly male companion managed to get out of the car while the female was later pulled from the the car by others.
A sheriff’s deputy on scene said that neither occupant of the car appeared injured. He said it was a case of simply confusing the gas pedal for the brake. The car lurched forward, up and into and then partially through a big picture window. It appeared that there has been structural damage to the building which may complicate repairs.
Neither occupant of the car appeared to be injured.
