— An SUV ran through a plate glass window and into a Denny's dining room in Durham Friday afternoon.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said the driver told police he hit the gas instead of the brake by accident and accelerated into the restaurant.

A child in the car got a scratch on his back, Michael said, but no one else – in the car or in the restaurant – was injured.

The incident happened just before 4:30 p.m. at the Denny's at 7021 N. C. Highway 751.
