A white Hyundai Elantra hit the front of the building at 3578 Davis Drive, just after 3 p.m.

The restaurant manager told ABC11 later that one of his employees hit the gas instead of the brake and crashed into the side of the building.

The driver went to the hospital, but she should be fine. No one else was hurt.

A Morrisville building inspector checked out the building and declared it safe. The restaurant will be open for business Wednesday.
