Small truck driven into restaurant, no injuries

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Police say an elderly woman driving a small pickup hit the accelerator instead of the brake and crashed the truck into a Denny's restaurant in Riverside.

Lt. Guy Toussant tells The Riverside Press-Enterprise the crash happened about 5 p.m. Monday.

He says the woman's husband was a passenger in the truck and was shaken but not hurt. No one inside the restaurant was hurt.

Toussant says the truck got about halfway inside the building and knocked down part of a Denny's sign.

The lieutenant says no one was cited or arrested.

The restaurant did have to close for a while.
