CEDAR LAKE | A 65-year-old woman drove into Harry O's Restaurant on Sunday morning, police said. 

The woman told officers her foot slipped off the brake and hit the vehicle's accelerator, according to a news release from the Cedar Lake Police Department. 

The woman crashed her car about 10:30 a.m. into the restaurant at 13226 Wicker Ave., damaging a wall and two booths, police said.
