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. 

An off-duty Cedar Lake officer was eating at Harry O's during the time of the crash and checked on the driver. Police said the driver was shaken up but not injured.

There were no other reported injuries.

The crash caused a portion of the restaurant to be closed off, but the business stayed open for the rest of the day. 

Employees at Harry O's declined to comment Sunday.

Police did not say if the driver would face any citations or charges.
