Clean up is underway at a Fayetteville Waffle House after a vehicle plowed into the busy restaurant, injuring several people early Tuesday morning.

Around 2 a.m., an SUV ended up inside the 24-hour eatery in the 2300 block of Gillespie Street.

Images from the scene showed broken tables and glass scattered in the dining area and the white SUV completely inside the building.

At least six people were injured - two employees, two customers, a man and the driver of the SUV, who was a woman. They were all taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.



As of noon, one person was in the trauma unit, a couple were treated and released and others were still being examined.

The daughter of one of the injured employees, said her mother's elbow was hurt and she had cuts and bruises.

It is unclear what caused the driver to crash. Police have not released the identity of the SUV driver or said what charges the driver may face.

There is also no word yet on if the building can be repaired or needs to be torn down.
