CARY, N.C. — A minivan crashed into the Chef of India restaurant at 748 Chatham St. in Cary shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday, police said.

The 32-year-old driver told police that her foot slipped off the brake as she was parking in front of the restaurant.

Sabina Rigging, who was in the restaurant at the time, said it sounded and felt like an explosion.

Viewers' pictures showed that the minivan crashed completely through the glass entrance of the restaurant and stopped inside the building.

The driver, whose name wasn't released, was charged with failure to reduce speed, police said. Her 6-year-old child was inside the vehicle at the time of the crash but was not injured.

The restaurant's manager suffered a minor cut on his leg.

About 10 people were inside the restaurant at the time of the incident, but no other serious injuries were reported.

The restaurant will remain closed Sunday.
