For all of the times that cars crash into buildings in the movies, it just doesn’t seem like something that you’d plan to see in Orinda in the middle of the afternoon. Diners and employees at Orinda’s Europa Restaurant, as well as stunned onlookers, witnessed an elderly woman drive her Honda Accord right through the front window of the restaurant shortly before 2:30 p.m. Thursday though.

Despite the destroyed storefront and damaged car, no serious injuries were reported. Firefighters from the Moraga-Orinda Fire District were on the scene shortly after the accident to check the driver for injury and keep the area safe.
