Topeka police say a woman was injured when a sport-utility vehicle slammed into a cafe.

Shawnee County Sheriff’s Sgt. Eric Frey says the woman, 80-year-old Joyce Kasson, was a customer at Banjo’s Cafe early Thursday when the vehicle hit the business.

The sheriff’s office says 82-year-old Peggy Turner was pulling into a parking space in front of the cafe when her vehicle went over a parking curb and into the restaurant. Investigators say a preliminary investigation indicates Turner hit the gas, rather than the brake, while parking.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the vehicle struck several tables, including one where Kasson was sitting.

Kasson was taken in an ambulance to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. The driver of the vehicle was not injured.
