April 24- Seattle Firefighters responded to a North Seattle restaurant after a car plowed through the front window of the business.

At 11:17 a.m. a 911 call came into the Fire Alarm Center reporting a car into a building in the 13500 block of Aurora Avenue North with a person possibly trapped. The driver told authorities that he was parking the car when he stepped on the gas instead of the brake and ran into the restaurant. The 3 people inside the car were able to safely evacuate on their own.

The restaurant was closed at the time of the crash. A female worker was in the back of the building but was uninjured.

The crash shattered the front window and door but did not cause significant structural damage. A tow truck was able to pull the car out of the restaurant.
