A witness who was inside the restaurant at the time of the crash told Channel 2's Tony Thomas "the wall exploded."
The driver, a 68-year-old woman, was pulling into the parking lot with her husband when investigators believe she hit the accelerator instead of the brake.
One other man inside the restaurant sustained minor injuries. No one else was injured.
Authorities said it's still being determined if the driver will face charges.
