HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – At least nine people were injured when a vehicle plowed into a restaurant near NRG Stadium in southwest Houston, Texas Wednesday.

The driver, who appeared to be in her 60s, said she was trying to park her Lexus SUV in the handicap spot in front of the restaurant when she hit the gas pedal instead of the brake.

There were dozens of people dining inside at the time. Surveillance video from inside the restaurant shows two men sitting by the window at the time of impact. At least one of them was dragged to the buffet line on the other side of the restaurant. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
